wondering if there were any plans to implement this XQuery Update facility=

I've no immediate plans to implement this, though I have looked at the spec
and given it some thought. I would prefer to let the specification stabilise
a bit first; and in any case I'm not yet sure how useful it is for a
processor that doesn't support persistent data - though I'm open to
persuasion on that.
Generally the best way to convince me that a major facility like this is
needed is to offer to sponsor the development project. I imagine Airbus has
more money in the bank than Saxonica...
