| I am rather sceptical about "query languages" which return "nodes"
| or other internal data structures. This is like XPath and has the
| problem that you have to use XPath _always_ with something else:
| XSLT, XQuery, or a programming language.

I'm surprised to hear you describe this as a problem. I've seen this
as one of the great strengths of XPath, and a major part of why it's
been such a resounding success. XML development without XPath would be
horribly much harder.
