I think that then you 'should' call it LPath and together with 
CPath [1] 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 ;-)
