Personal response.

This is an unfortunate result of timing. In our efforts to get the spec
finished, we put a freeze on new features and decided not to support XPath 3.1.
Later, as it appeared that XPath 3.1 was making good progress, we allowed XSLT
3.0 processors to support 3.1, but did not make it mandatory, and did not add
any explicit XSLT capability to support XPath 3.1 extensions such as arrays.

Instructions to create arrays would definitely be "nice to have" and in Saxon I
will be plugging the gap with saxon:array and saxon:array-member extension
instructions. But I'm afraid we really have to ship the spec now; as with a
software project, the more features you add the more you risk never getting the
thing out of the door.
