            Bug ID: 30155
           Summary: [XP31] The term "Query environment" is not defined or
           Product: XPath / XQuery / XSLT
           Version: Recommendation
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Windows NT
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: XPath 3.1
          Assignee: jonathan.robie@gmail.com
          Reporter: abel.braaksma@xs4all.nl
        QA Contact: public-qt-comments@w3.org
  Target Milestone: ---

The term "query environment" is used in the XPath 3.1 specification, but there
is no definition for that term. My guess is it's a left-over from XQuery and
that the term should not be used inside XPath 3.1, but I can be wrong.

It occurs in this definition (and in the Glossary):

 [Definition: External functions are functions that are implemented outside the
query environment.]

As a result, the term External functions cannot be independently understood
from reading the XP31 spec.

This text may be a result of the resolution of bug #29509, which in its
resolution primarily mentions XQuery.
