Adhoc I'd also expect a TRUE in that case. It depends though whether
XOR(1,1,1) should be identical to ((1 XOR 1) XOR 1).

I'll forward this question to the SC for discussion.

The line mentioning OR? I think that was meant as a pointer to how the
XOR function could behave similar to the OR function when no parameter

Thanks for pointing out.
