A quick search turned up this archived posting from David Vun Kannon:


Excerpt from first paragraph:

  All of the armamentarium and impedimenta of the XML arsenal,
  especially pointing, linking, the DOM and transformation, cannot be
  brought to bear on XPath expressions because they are not in XML

...and a little later in the message:

  While the up-translation of XPath to an XML syntax can be undertaken
  by individuals in an ad hoc way, and suited only to their own
  purposes, I believe that it would benefit the XML-using community at
  large if there was an officially sanctioned way to describe XPath
  expressions in an XML instance syntax. The use of such a syntax
  would be optional, just as the use of the full or abbreviated syntax
  is a matter of choice.
