[xsl] Seemingly incorrect example of function subtyping in XDM 3.0


Subject: [xsl] Seemingly incorrect example of function subtyping in XDM 3.0

In the W3C XDM 3.0 Proposed recommendation at the end of section:
 "2.8.1 Functions"  (http://www.w3.org/TR/xpath-datamodel-30/#function-items)

the last example says:

    "function(item()) as item() is a subtype of function(xs:string) as item()"

I believe that the correct statement is:


    "function(xs:string) as item()     is a subtype of
function(item()) as item() "

Could someone, please, confirm whether the example in the XDM 3.0 Spec
is correct, and if yes, then what is the chain of rules that leads to
this statement?
