I'm not 100% sure, but downgrading from XPath to CSS3 Selectors is 
probably easier. Except for cases like 'a:link', 'a:visited', but I'm 
not sure if those are necessary.

I guess that a subset of CSS3 Selectors should be defined, which is 
compatible with XPath (this means disallowing various pseudo-classes).
