[xsl] Questions on the Functions and Operators 3.0 recommendation

I just started reading this document and am impressed by the
systematic approach to defining the functions, their clear grouping
and the uniform way of defining each function.

I was also impressed by the mere number of functions -- counted 224 functions.

Because there are so many functions specified, it is not immediately
obvious which functions are new in this specification and which have
been transferred from the 2.0 specification.

So, my question is whether there is a document that specifies just the
new functions, or a document that shows all changes made since version

Another question is regarding this text in the "Status of this
Document" section:

"This is one document in a set of six documents that have been
progressed to Recommendation together (XQuery 3.0, XQueryX 3.0, XPath
3.0, Data Model 3.0, Functions and Operators 3.0, and Serialization

In the listed documents above, XQuery is mentioned twice. My question is:
    Which is the 6th document in this set?

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.
Typing monkeys will write all Shakespeare's works in 200yrs.Will they
write all patents, too? :)
I finally figured out the only reason to be alive is to enjoy it.
