Mark,

Let's be sure to consider the form authors first, not the implementors
first.

...

However, with XPath 1.0 this won't work since the id()-like function
needs access to the XForms data structures to get the MIP types.
Therefore, unless you want to pollute your XPath evaluator with
'knowledge' of XForms, you'd need to implement the id()-like function
over on the *XForms processor* and make a call to it from the XPath
evaluator. The XPath evaluator doesn't care what the id()-like function
does internally, as long as it gives back some nodes.

Hence my preference for changing the name so that the XPath function and
this one are kept separate.

Regards,

Mark
