And the DOM group itself does not wish to use a different syntax for 
the generalized queries if we can find one already developed that 
meets our needs. So we will be looking at XLL Xpointer syntax as 
well as whatever XSL does, and watching what the RDF group 
chooses since they are also talking about query interfaces. I 
personally would be happy if everyone could use the same syntax, as 
long as it meets the DOM needs.
