Re: [xml-dev] Concerned about the increasing reliance on XPath

As I said, the xpath that you posted originally would have the same 
behaviour. If it is acting differently it is because you have changed 
the default xpath2 behaviour for unprefixed elements.

/*[local-name()='a'][namespace-uri()='http://example.com']/@version-id = 0.4

fortunately that is not needed and you can do as you did in xpath 1
together with a binding of "default" to http://www.example.org.
