Also: please remember the purpose of XPath:

<quote>
XPath is designed to be embedded in a host language such as [XSL
Transformations (XSLT) Version 3.0] or [XQuery 3.0: An XML Query Language].
</quote>

Both XQuery and XPath are functional, modular languages. XPath was never
intended to be modular, it's not clear to me that XPath is the right level for
this. That's something that could be explored, but not in this version.
