Merge of text nodes in computed element constructor


I have a question about computed element constructor.
Do I have or have not merge adjacent text nodes from content sequence
when I consruct XML element?
I think I have to, because there is a requirement in the Data Model
specification, which tells us that "The children property must not contain
two consecutive text nodes". But the rules from the XQuery specification
(section keep silence.

And no matter which answer you give me, I think that mentioning about
this problem (in section will make the XQuery specification more

Best regards,
