Hi Henry,

OK, so you want XPath expressions to be evaluated with the root node of 
the default input as the context node. That sounds reasonable to me.

How do you think we should support the following scenarios? "We 
shouldn't in v1.0" is an acceptable answer:

(a) Steps that are conditional on the content of documents that are 
produced by previous steps in the pipeline.

(b) Steps that are conditional on the number of documents in the default 

(c) Steps that are conditional on a test that involves two inputs (e.g. 
does the xml:base attribute on the document element of one input match 
the superDoc attribute on the document element of the other input).
