Unless, of course, you don't use a relational database and SQL/XML. It 
is desirable to have a standard way to add and remove documents from a 
collection - since there isn't currently a way to do this if you aren't 
using SQL/XML. in my opinion, this is a major ommission from the current 
XQuery Update specification. A lot of people out there are aiming to use 
XQuery as their only database manipulation language.
