Peter Kelly came across a paper which discusses an implementation of XQuery designed for use with web services. A benefit of XQuery (which also applies to XSLT) that is emphasised by this paper is its suitability for dealing with the XML data that is sent via web services interfaces - the type mismatch between XML schema and languages like Java and C# is not present when using languages designed specifically for dealing with XML data.
