>In summary, DIWG agrees with this comment. The following response 
>indicates the changes we plan to make. We'll respond more fully with 
>details of the actual changes once they have been determined.
>XPath expressions within the expr attribute can use any information 
>available to the processor. The specification explicitly discusses 
>extensions by way of additional XPath functions and provides the 
>means by which authors can check for the availability of the 
>functions on which their expressions may depend.
>However, the specification only explicitly discusses a 'starter set' 
>of functions which mimic the capabilities of the proposed CSS Media 
>Queries specification. It is certainly not the intention of DIWG to 
>imply that this is the only set of functions that can be used. We 
>recognise that the current structure of the document can lead to 
>this impression, which is certainly not what we intend. To try and 
>address this, DIWG has split the definition of functions into a 
>separate document. At the same time, DIWG has defined additional 
>functions which broaden the capability of the specifications. This 
>document will be published with a revised version of the DISelect 
>document for second last call.
>The point about access to the host language document is interesting 
>and is an example of a more general case for access to materials 
>other those within the delivery context itself. DIWG has addressed 
>this by expanding the set of XPath functions available to include 
>mechanisms for accessing the host language document. It has also 
>created a small-footprint profile that omits this support (DISelect 
>Basic Profile) to allow DISelect to be used in resource constrained 
>Best wishes
