You sound like you're jumping the gun a little bit.  To me,
XPath/XQuery/XSLT are perfect candidates because of their complexity.  How
much have we really thought about testing and verification?

I do agree that we would need some sort of quick proposal and then concept
test in fairly short order, to see how tractable this can be made.

It sounds like we have an experimental idea that may or may not turn out to

be helpful, but which we suspect is likely to result in an as-yet-unknown
amount of work.

As a first step, I would suggest testing this on a small scale with a spec
where the editors are particularly interested in trying this.
