Perhaps I should ask for a vote: do people on this list prefer the
simple 3-page James Clark description of the XPath 1.0 data model, with
all these inherent ambiguities, or the complex 30-page committee-written
description of the XPath 2.0 data model, which attempts to eliminate all
such ambiguities by diving into layers of abstraction and formalism?

I get the impression you lot can't make your minds up.
