Dear all,

Section 1 of XPath reads:

"XPath uses a compact, non XML syntax to facilitate use of XPath within 
URIs and XML attributes".

Doesn't is this related with the recommendation that we are about to 
make on use of QName in attribute values?. If this use cause so many 
problems, should not we say something like "despite XPath admits QNames 
and it is designed to be used in attribute values..." and then 
discouraging use of QNames in attribute values...?, just for making 
clear that we have identified this potential use and to give the right 
message to message designers...

Regards

Juan Carlos.
