Thanks again to Uche for the clarification (I already thanked him
privately) -- I either never knew or have completely forgotten the
term "XPattern" for an XSLT pattern, but I wasn't much involved with
the XSL people in the late 1990s.
Perhaps the term 'XPattern' would be safe to reuse for a
SAX/STAX-friendly XPath subset, then? That's what I had originally
(and mistakenly) thought Uche was writing about.

Is that a red state or a blue state?
All the best,
