The status quo says the following things about XPath, formerly dealt with in
bug 3673:

1) Schema authors can write any XPath 2.0 expressions they desire.
2) Schema processors are not allowed to report errors on any given XPath 2.0
expression.
3) Processors are required to support the minimum XPath 2.0 subset defined in
the spec.
4) The spec allows only certain references using XPath; capacity exceeded
errors may arise during assement.

The WG has received repeated requests to revise #3 as #3':
3') Processors are required to support XPath 2.0.
