Yes, the link poses the old join question. I think you'd need something
like an extension function so that you could get the context node into
the function as a parameter without changing context, eg
<xsl:apply-templates select=".//*[psvi-info(.)/@type='xyz:myType']" />
Apart from unique element names and unique type names, I'd like access
 does the current element type inherit from type X?
 does it inherit from type X purely through extension? (ie would it
be safe to apply type X templates to this element?)
 an enumeration of its inheritance tree, if any
 its facets, if any
And I'd like this info to be represented in an easily XPath query-able
Does this sound a reasonable start?
