Hi all,

Reading through the ITS spec, it seems like ITS only uses a subset of xpath, 
limited to the child and attribute axes (same as xslt patterns). 

I am pondering how hard it would be to develop a streaming ITS processor with 
this in mind, i.e. one that would stream instance-documents and only use an 
in-memory model of the ITS rules itself.

The pointer-like attributes (e.g. locNotePointer) does however seem to use the 
"parent" axis. E.g. in a Example 25 "../notes" is used to reference a sibling 
or a child of the context node "//msg/data". But this could be transformed or 
simplified to use the child axis given the context node.

Any thoughts?

cheers,
asgeir
