Differences between XPath and XQuery:

- Static typing in XQuery, not in XPath
- Construction in XQuery, not in XPath
- Sorting and grouping in XQuery, not in XPath
- Function definition in XQuery (including recursive functions)
- XQuery may not provide all XPath axes (implementation issue)

Differences between XQuery and XSLT:
- XSLT currently operates on tree fragments, XQuery on sequences of
nodes and values
- XSLT has a data driven processing architecture, XQuery has a
declarative processing architecture
