Hi,

I like the update proposal, but I have one major concern. My current
observation is that proposal allows the removal of document nodes from
an XDM instance via the "delete" operation. Assuming that my XDM
instance represents an XML database I can remove a document (node) from
my database via the "delete" operation.
On the other hand the constraints defined for the "insert" operation
seem to forbid the insertion of document nodes into an XDM instance. I
have a problem with that, because from my point of view this makes it
impossible to insert new document nodes into a database via XQuery
update.  

Best Regards,

Thorsten Fiebig
