Was it advertized?  I follow Firefox closely enough, but I don't remember
when XPointer was supported.  Was it supported by other browsers?  It would
be rare in the wild if it's only supported by Firefox.  Do other browsers
have easy scripting support for XPath?  Except for the cross-domain iframe
case, you could script support for XPointer if the browser has decent
support for XPath in Javascript.  I know I've had instances where I wished
for XPointer support. It may or may not have had a fair shake.
