Interesting, despite the utter dearth of definite articles.

You talk about the benefits of an "object model neutral" XPath API, yet 
provide no examples of how any object model other than W3C DOM might 
work. DOM already provides its own XPath API, and I'm guessing that by 
promoting the JAXP version you believe it's a better solution. Could 
you provide any reasons for us to use and/or implement both APIs? What 
other object models might be supported, and if they're so important, 
why does JAXP not have core support for them?

I'm also of the opinion that the "security enhancements" are a crock. 
What you're essentially saying is give the user an option to prespecify 
an abort if the implementation detects a condition it can't scale to 
correctly. Or perhaps I'm missing something - does it also specify, for 
instance, that URLs must use HTTPS or some other cryptographically 
secure protocol, and abort if that's not the case? If so, that's not in 
the documentation.
