[xsl] Map functions in XSLT 3.0 static expressions?

I'm having trouble seeing if or how the XSLT 3.0 map functions [1] are
allowed in static expressions [2].

The 'Statically known function signatures' are:

   The core functions defined in [Functions and Operators],
   together with the functions element-available,
   function-available, type-available, and system-property
   defined in this specification, plus the set of extension
   functions that are present in the static context of
   every XPath expression (other than a use-when expression)
   within the content of the element that is the parent of
   the use-when attribute.

Maps are defined in XSLT 3.0, not in 'Functions and Operators, and
functions defined in the XSLT spec are explicitly not extension functions
[3], so are the map functions allowed in static expressions?
