Hi,

As you may know, XPath 2.0 [1] became a W3C Recommendation in January 
2007. The current TCDL 2.0 spec was mostly written before that time 
and only references XPath 1.0:
"The xpath attribute type specifies the location of an issue by means 
of an XPath expression as defined in XPath 1.0." [2]

Would there be any objections against allowing XPath 2.0? According 
to the abstract of the XPath 2.0 spec, XPath 2.0 is a superset of 
XPath 1.0, so there would be no need to make immediate changes; it 
would just give us a more powerful expression language when we need it.

Best regards,
