XPointer scheme spec dead in water?

So.. more than two years in draft status for something that seems 
extremely useful and can rest on the solid foundation of the 
established xpath spec.  What's the prognosis?  Is this replaced by 
some other spec?

If there is some hangup about the (complicated) points and ranges why 
not endorse something like St. Laurent's xpath1scheme 
(http://www.simonstl.com/ietf/draft-stlaurent-xpath-frag-01.html) and 
leave the more complex stuff until it can be worked out in a subsequent 
scheme?
