I think the issues of axes and XPath implementations are beside the
point -- _if_ we go this route, we could simply appeal to XPath in an
'as if' way -- i.e. "you can understand 'x/y' as if it were an XPath
with default primary axis 'step' and default child axis 'output
port'".

But I'm still not sure I want to go the separator route at all. . .
