The "for...return..." expression is part of XPath 2.0, and therefore part of
XQuery (because XQuery is a superset of XPath 2.0). The if-absent() function
is defined in the "Functions and Operators" document
http://www.w3.org/TR/xquery-operators/ which both XSLT and XQuery are using
as their core function library. The <xsl:value-of> instruction and its
"separator" attribute are part of XSLT 2.0.
