I think the only reasonable candidate for an optional feature is "higher order
functions" which would include the function() sequenceType syntax, inline
functions, function literals (f#n), partial application, dynamic callling,
functions such as fn:map, and functions such as fn:function-name and
fn:function-lookup.

I have an open mind as to whether making this an optional feature would be a
good idea. I think that before doing so, we would want to see a reasoned
argument from an implementor or from the developers of a significant host
language (e.g. XForms) as to why the feature is unwanted.
