The data model approach would mean that you could never even in the future
write unified XPath expressions for both text/html and application/xhtml+xml

As for the default namespace, if there's a way how I could hack the XPath 2.0
default element namespace behavior into an XPath 1.0 processor, I'd be
interested in exploring that approach. Requiring the XPath 1.0 processor to be
replaced with an XPath 2.0 processor entirely is not a feasible first step.

How far away from approximating XPath 2.0 in the Compatibility Mode with
http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml as the default namespace would the result be if
the check was:
If the document is an HTML document and a name expression is being compared
against an element, behave as if "" namespace on the expression side were the
"http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" namespace.
