This function exists in XPath 3.1, but as I said, it depends on the addition
of arrays to the data model.

We may yet switch XSLT 3.0 to use XPath 3.1 rather than XPath 3.0. There has
been reluctance to do this in the past because no-one on the XSLT side
believed that XPath 3.1 would take less than the usual 7 years, but there are
encouraging signs that it will be finished during 2015, so this objection may
yet disappear.
