haha, well, you _could_ have a namespace prefix of preceding-sibling;
the danger is that then writing preceding-sibling:boy is not an error!

I dont know whether anyone has analyzed the grammar to find errors of
this sort.

Maybe true and false would be in this category. Using any XPath keyword
(or XQuery, in that language) as a namespace prefix might be asking for
trouble i suppose.

for $i in return:for-each - for:let return confused
