--- Comment #1 from Michael Kay <mike@saxonica.com> ---
1. The typo has already been fixed in the current WD.

2. Possibly, but you've had over four years to make this comment; it's too late
to make such tweaks now.

3. We made a policy decision a long time ago that in the interests of
consistency, functions should not implicitly map over their operands. The
lookup operator ("?"), however, maps over both operands.

The arrow operator has never been a mapping operator, though some people wanted
it to be. If it were, it would have very inconsistent behaviour depending on
whether the first argument of the function accepts a sequence or not.
