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.
