What exactly are you trying to do? You certainly can't embed a XPath
expression into the xmlns attribute -- unless you intend for that expression
to be the identifying URL for the namespace...

Subject: [JDEV] XPath Granularity in IQ
Hi, all. I understand simple XPath granularity is capable in XDB's
"insert" action, and that it should not be too much work to extend this
granularity into "get" actions.
However, I'm wondering what the best place for this XPath would be in
the IQ message? as part of the namespace, as in
xmlns="jabber:iq:version?/os"? or as a separate attribute, such as
I'm thinking in terms of parsing and retrieval efficiency. Is either way
"better" for XML parsers and the server itself to handle? My thoughts
are that the separate attribute would be best, since it already has the
elements separated, to be applied where-ever.
