Subject: Adding types to XPath

| I've been following discussions about the plans for XPath 2.0 (and XSLT
| 2.0) with interest. One thing that concerns me is that in order to
| implement XPath 2.0 I have to implement the PSVI, and thus W3C Schemas.
| So my feedback on this point from one of the very few XPath implementors
| out there would be simply, please don't force that. If you can allow
| access to type information via an optional function (e.g. /foo[type(.,
| 'SomeType')]), that would make an implementor's life a lot easier.
| Matt.
