Yes, they're not full Xpath, sorry. But STX implementation
might not be very lightweight thing - I must look
at it more closely.

Yep, of course. My idea was about updating the document or
binding updatable data into variables,
state handling is part of it of course. Maybe I wasn't very clear with
my explanations/pseudo code.

It could be handy to have lightweight updatable sax based binding for 
situations where
you need to update some part of large doc for example. In situations where 
you can't
parse into DBMS or you don't want to build application specific data structure
from the whole doc.

of myth, but to use the tools of neuroscience, and start dissecting and 
understanding how things actually function," said Dr. Hans Breiter, a 
psychiatrist and co-author of the study."
