My understanding is that full XPath is streamable in the 
context of whole document scans, i.e. there is strictly 
speaking no need to subset. The problem case is for partial 
scans, i.e. XPath execution from a context node. This makes 
the solution less appealing as it has less practical use, 
say in XSLT. Of course subsetting XPath to make it easier 
to implement in a streaming model may be a good goal
