I can't agree to this.

The processor profiles draft was built on top of the Infoset.
Perhaps we don't have to say "data model" (though I'm not even
sure I agree with that point) but it was not built on top of
the xpath data model, it was built on Infoset, and it's the
Infoset terminology it continues to use throughout the spec.
