It's a neat proposal!

I have some questions:

Having used HP polish notation a lot in my early days, I would have
thought of an XPath expression as a stack and would have embedded the
location steps instead of keeping them at the same level...

Can you give examples of location steps within conditions ?
(such as child::chapter[section/title="XML Encoding of XPath"])

Wouldn't it be a good idea to extend it to encode XPointer ?
