Paul, given that SML's usage of xpointer was exclusively to address single 
elements using xpath expressions, do you think 
http://www.w3.org/2005/04/xpointer-schemes/xpath1 and/or its xpath2 
equivalent would be likely replacements?

SML shouldn't reference xpointer

The XML Core WG just noticed that the latest (editor's)
draft of SML 1.1 at
has a normative reference to "XPointer xpointer() Scheme"

It should be noted that this is a (non-last call)
Working Draft from 2002 on which no work is planned.
In fact, the xpointer() scheme failed CR, and was
withdrawn as a W3C work item.

You should not plan to reference the xpointer() scheme
in your specification.
