a few observations about p:string-replace;

   *  what happens when the match is an attribute ?

   * shouldn't there be an dynamic error condition defined ?

   * the name string-replace seems to be cross purposes with the
following text in the editor draft spec;

     If the expression matches any other kind of node, the entire node
(and not just its contents) is replaced by the string value of the
replace expression.

    perhaps this behavior is controlled by an option which is off by
default, so it is only strings we are interested in
