IMO, complexity is not the main point here. What's happening with XPath
2.0 is that you're changing the nature of the language, like if you said
for Java: "the next version will not be interpreted but compiled" or
"the next version will be dynamically typed" or maybe more to the point
"you will have to provide a UML model before you can define a class in
the next version".


Have you ever thought about unit testing XSLT templates?
