What _are_ you talking about.

The request, as I understood it, was to provide exactly what XPointer 
provides, by requiring XPointer support. That's already possible, by 
simply using the XPointer spec.

This has no relation whatsoever to the other cases you brought up, which 
are examples of technologies that are _extended_ by WF2.

Please stop trolling. It's getting quite tiresome. The rest of us are 
trying to actually do work here.
