Thanks Michael, that's what I was missing.  This just invokes the lexical
parsing of $x and compares with the lexical requirements for xs:dateTime,
correct?  Or is its behavior more determined than that?

Just a minor nit, wouldn't syntactic consistency suggest *castable-as* for the
operator name?  Is it really two tokens?
