| XPath allows id() function and "namespace::" axis

I think id() is ok. Is there any value in supporting the namespace:: axis?

| XSLTMatchPattern allows furthermore key()

Hmm. I think we either have to forbid them, or provide a mechanism for
defining them. I prefer the latter for V1. I very, very strongly
prefer the latter for V1 :-)
