I had been meaning to propose that instead of the xpointer
scheme, the SML spec use the xpath1 scheme.  I hadn't gotten
around to it, but this seems an opportune place and time.

As far as I can tell, there is no particular bit of
functionality present in xpointer that is not present in
xpath1, that SML depends upon. Indeed, at least some examples
of the extra functionality (like being able to point at
ranges that do not contain well-balanced XML) would probably
be problematic for most SML implementations.  So xpath1
is probably a better fit in any case.

Of course, xpath2 should also be considered.
