First (/a/b)[1] + 42 is not a static error. The semantics is clear for the
empty sequence: "If the atomized operand is an empty sequence, the result of
the arithmetic expression is an empty sequence", and the static typing allows
the above expression.

I personally think that making the inserting into empty a no-op or dynamic
error is ok with me, but I want to not have this raised as a type error and
only raise type errors if more than one target node is being specified.
