We can define that syntax and semantics of the namespace apply only to
the operands of cell-content-is-between() and such.

cell-content-is-between(xx:Value1,xx:Value2) for the reason of the comma
operator isn't practical. Some might also come up with funny constructs
like cell-content-is-between(xx:Value1,yy:Value2) so we would have to
inhibit that.
