Perhaps that is the *real* issue? We keep hearing about complexity, 
but implementation experience says that XPointer is only incrementally 
worse than XPath (which for many things is way overkill).

FWIW. I think that it's fine for XPointer to own the fragment 
identifier of text/xml.... just not for things like SVG. 

Ultimately, fragment identifiers are a hack anyway.
