Description Michael Rys 2005-05-19 20:07:11 UTC
Propose to allow empty since this function operates like a casting/constructor 
and should accept empty (as the constructor functions do):

fn:dateTime($arg1 as xs:date?, $arg2 as xs:time?) as xs:dateTime?
The result xs:dateTime has a date component whose value is equal to $arg1 and 
a time component whose value is equal to $arg2. If any of the arguments is the 
empty sequence, the result is the empty sequence.

The working group considered this comment at its meeting today
and decided not to accept it. For rationale, please see bug 1467.
Comment 2 Michael Kay 2006-10-05 09:22:24 UTC
For the record, this was raised again under bug #3651, and the WGs changed their collective mind on the issue. The proposed change was accepted.
