OK, let's fill [1]:

Apache test against merlin-xpath-filter2-three.tar.gz:

1: xpath-filter2 It verifies.
2: performance: The pure transform takes 470 milli-seconds on my 350 MHz 

So I'd say: Y1/Y

BTW, I didn't really understood this 'Z' flag from the new spec. What I do 
now is the following:

I have constructed this list of nodesets like this:

No |  Type      | Nodes (not the xpath expressions)
 0 | union      | 1 node   /
 1 | intersect  | 2 nodes  //ToBeSigned
 2 | subtract   | 2 nodes  //NotToBeSigned
 3 | union      | 1 node   //ReallyToBeSigned

- I make a tree traversal.
  - for each node I encounter during traversal:
     - Search the nodeset list from the end to the start for
       the first union operation which roots the current node;
       (It MUST find a union, at least at position 0 which roots
       all nodes in the document)
     - Search from that found union step to the end of the list and
       make the following check:
        - if the current step is an intersect and the nodeset
          does NOT root the current node, do not include the node.
        - else if the current step is a subtract and the nodeset
          DOES root the current node, do not include the node.
     - If you did reach the end of the list without excluding the
       current node, then include it.
