It isn't necessary to specify "xs:int" . If the default namespace is
the XML Schema namespace, then  the types of the arguments and return
value of any function of the type:
    function(int, int) as int

is the XML Schema xs:int data-type.

The above type certainly is a bit ambiguous without knowing the context.

Truly great madness cannot be achieved without significant intelligence.
To invent, you need a good imagination and a pile of junk
Never fight an inanimate object
To avoid situations in which you might make mistakes may be the
biggest mistake of all
Quality means doing it right when no one is looking.
You've achieved success in your field when you don't know whether what
you're doing is work or play
To achieve the impossible dream, try going to sleep.
Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored.

I finally figured out the only reason to be alive is to enjoy it.
