/ Jeni Tennison <jeni@jenitennison.com> was heard to say:
| To summarise:
| 1. Options that return values other than nodes must be expressions.
| 2. Options that identify nodes relative to a non-document context node
| must be expressions.
| 3. Other options should be patterns.

So I think the net-net is that we should use match patterns everywhere
except where the semantics of the component or option require the use
of an expression.

Right now we have 'target' on: delete, insert, rename, replace,
unwrap, and wrap. I think all of those should be match patterns.

                                        Be seeing you,
