--- Comment #1 from Michael Kay <mike@saxonica.com> ---
Can't really comment on the name; these things happen. Some of us like short
names, some like long names, but we all hate meetings where a lot of time is
spent on deciding the best terminology. The function names evolved as their
specification evolved: the original idea was to have something that dynamically
executed a query, but we decided that dynamically loading a query and making
its functions available for execution was much more powerful, so the name
changed to reflect this.

I believe the current state of the conformance rules is that a query processor
is required to recognize the fn:transform function, but it is allowed to throw
a dynamic error if "no suitable XSLT processor is available". This means
queries can be made interoperable provided they are written using try-catch.
