Comment from Thomas Fischer on public-qt-comments:

the documentation for map:entry says:

Unlike the map expression (map{...}), this technique can be used to construct a
map with a variable number of entries, for example:
    map:merge(for $b in //book return map:entry($b/isbn, $b))

At least with Saxon-HE you can achieve the same result with a simple
map constructor
    map:merge(for $b in //book return map{$b/isbn: $b})

I wonder, if this is just a "special feature" of Saxon or if there is any other
reason to keep map:entry in the proposal
