I remember being genuinely confused why anyone would call xsl:variable
"xsl:variable" when it was in fact a constant.

The list experts explained to me why it's called that, I learned
something, and then I was happy.

It's no different to text() or != or whatever part of the language we
repeat this thread on next.

(by the way Im specifically talking about != and not = vs eq)
