3.1.5 Static Function Calls

"[Definition: The built-in functions supported by XPath 3.1 are defined in [XQuery and XPath Functions and Operators 3.1].]"

*built-in functions* is bolded in the text, but appears only once in XQeury and XPath Functions etc. and then in a note. 

Shouldn't "built-in functions" be designated in some manner? Perhaps "functions defined in [XQuery and XPath Functions and Operators 3.1] are supported by XPath 3.1."

In which case a general reference would be correct.
Comment 1 Jonathan Robie 2015-07-13 22:11:34 UTC
Conformance is actually the place that we say which functions are built in:

An implementation of all functions defined in [XQuery and XPath Functions and Operators 3.1], and a definition of every item specified to be implementation-defined, unless that function or item is part of an optional feature that is not provided by the implementation.

The term built-in functions is actually used about 7 times, judging by grep.  Better to define it than eliminate it.

This is closely related to, where a fix has been proposed.
