I don't think it's that tricky. You make the flag a lexical one (as is 
done with XSLT 2.0), based on the nearest xpath-version attribute. Note 
that XPath 2.0 processors can still be used in a xpath-version="1.0" 
context, just they have to use backwards-compatible mode for those 
particular XPaths.

Cheers,
