Maybe. But a clock is required - no clock, no current-dateTime(). Or
would the system still be conformant if it returned an arbitrary, but
formally correct datetime "current at some time during the evaluation of
a query or transformation in which fn:current-dateTime() is executed",
which the system could claim is the correct system time, and on which
date arithmetic could be performed correctly?
