I expect that XPath 1.0 will continue to exist for a good long time.

One might ask whether we need XQuery, XPath 1.0, *and* XQuery 2.0. One 
reasonable position would be to drop XQuery 2.0. But the XSLT folks say 
their users really want this additional functionality.

I don't see how adding an XPath 1.5 helps here, I think it just adds to 
fragmentation of XPath.
