I agree with Jonathan that attempting to insert a node into a non-existent
target should be at least a dynamic error. Regarding static checking, I don't
see why this case should be treated differently from other pessimistic static
checks (for example, (/a/b)[1] + 47 is also a static error for the same reason
cited by Michael.)
