Right, just having clear explanations of the "early" and "late" binding
models more widely used would help.  Could you summarize how
that's different from the XPath model?  I keep thinking of XPath as
being a read-only addressing scheme, and the problem you described
seems like it wouldn't show up in a read-only world.
