Please note that the wording you are criticizing comes from Sun, not W3C.
Even I wouldn't know what and where to send the informations concerning
libxml implementation of XPointer ! Talking to Eve, and if I remember
correctly, having the documentation/source freely available was sufficient.
Now if this not the case, I don't know either.
As Eve wrote http://lists.xml.org/archives/xml-dev/200101/msg00377.html:

So I'm forwarding this comment there, feel free to send them a mail directly
