  I suggest to extend Primary expressions in XPath 2.0 to allow a subset
of the an+b expression as defined in


for simplified grouping. It is basically possible to express the same
functionality using count(...), the following-/preceding-sibling axes
and the mod operator but this is typically rather unconvenient and hard
to understand for beginners. It should for example be possible to use


to select all even tr children of the context node.
