RE:  bohemians
I was going to say this was still an unresolved issue in XQuery based on issue 307 until I checked and saw 
which seems to confirm your fears.

	No. I have _lots_ of complaints, but that is a correct summary of this
	particular one. As far as I see there's nothing in document() for
	example that says read the document at that URI not some cut down view
	of it that you may infer from some schema that you find lying
	around. (For good readons the schema spec is very permissive in how a
	schema aware parser may associate schemas with documents).
	So basically if I use document()  to load the document
	then I know in XSLT1 that string(A) is "012" in all processors.
	In XPath2 it could be anything, from an error to whatever is the
	canonical lexical form of whatever type some schema applied.
	And from XSLT I don't get to control that. this is a massive backward
	step in interoperability.
