I should have added that another reason for taking this route is it
means that the spec. doesn't need to rule out self-reference, direct
or indirect, because it just isn't possible, and that this makes life
simpler for implementations as well.  We want to do everything
possible to avoid requiring XProc implementations to inspect the
internals of XPaths. . .
