Description Tim Mills 2014-09-19 12:02:52 UTC
The latter part of the description

"Returns the result of atomizing a sequence, that is, replacing all nodes in the 
sequence by their typed values."

of fn:data doesn't really take account of arrays.
Comment 1 Tim Mills 2014-10-14 16:11:34 UTC
The WG discussed this in the teleconference on 2014-10-14 and agreed to make an editorial change.
Comment 2 Michael Kay 2014-11-17 10:17:43 UTC
I have changed the summary to "Returns the result of atomizing a sequence. This process flattens arrays, and replaces nodes by their typed values."
