So you're proposing to change 2.6.3 so that it distinguishes between
steps that take options whose values are XPaths and those that don't?

I don't like that inconsistency, but it might work for XSLT and
XQuery. We'd still be signing on for the limitation I described for
any extension step or step we add in the future though.

I think that's another question that goes in the "we'd need to think
hard about this" bucket.
