The fn:serialize function is used a lot in practice. However, our users report
back to us that the declaration of serialization parameters is perceived as
inconvenient, and the namespace URI is often forgotten.

It would be great if the last function signature of fn:serialize could be
extended such that it accepts both element(output:serialization-parameters)?
and map(*):

1) Existing syntax:

  fn:serialize(map { 'year': 1984 },
      <output:method value="json"/>

2) Map syntax:

  fn:serialize(map { 'year': 1984 }, map { 'method': 'json })
