The extension of XQuery with Full-Text capabilities to XQuery Full-Text [1] requires some changes in the in- frastructure of XQuery processors: While the XQuery Full-Text draft makes little assumptions about the in- carnation and semantics of score values, it is quite ex- plicit about their existence, and where and how they shall be accessed. On the other hand, the draft does not mention their whereabouts in the meantime. I provide an elegant and simple yet ?exible frame- work to handle score values e?ciently in one of the most e?cient XQuery database implementations, the Path?nder/MonetDB couple.
