I think that then you 'should' call it LPath and together with
CPath  and XPath++ and maybe some pointer from
Machael Kay ( I think I remember that at early stages of SAXON,
Michael had imlemented the streaming subset of XPath ) + god know
what else -
all that would make a nice XPath 'cluster'
That was my point. If that XML Encyclopedia would be
blessed by W3C, we just submit our urls to the knowledge
base - and those who may think about re-inventing this wheel
again may decide not to invent it at all ;-)
