Good as in there are use cases for it, or good just because? It seems to me that adding XPath 2.0 support is a non-negligible addition, and I have yet to hear about anyone being remotely interested in implementing it. So while attacking the low-hanging fruit of what we can get to work right today seems appealing to me, looking beyond that is IMHO not necessary.
