Yes this will be really good to have. But I want to go even further:
Sort of XPoiter function. For example:
<About>My name is &ancestor(1,this,FirstName,*);</About>
i.e. XPointer relative to context of current #element.
I do not want to hardcode it becouse a user should be free to modify
however he wants.
I am working now on an application that needs this kind of functionality.
I do not know of any parser that has it, so will have to create
an add-on. If you have any advice, would greatly appreciate it.
