First, Thanks to JonF for taking the trouble to reply to XML-DEV.

This direction is relatively straightforward. Thus I can take CML examples
from Michael Wright (Henry Rzepa's student) and transform them
algorithmically into SVG with XSLT. Going the other way is not trivially
possible - either it needs an extension function (what would it return? - a
new nodeset?) or hack into the DOM [must confess I haven't looked this in
detail]. My main reason for trying to parse the path data is that I may get
an SVG file depicting something with higher semantics (e.g. chemistry) and
I need to build a DOM where the points in the paths are first class elements.
