No, you can access elements via any XPath expression.

It depends upon which XSLT 2.0 processor you are using. As far as I
know, there are none that support the XPointer scheme (which is not a
W3C recommendation - only the element and xmlns schemes made the
I think Mozilla implements it incompletely, and I've somewhere seen a
proprietary implementation listed as implementing it. Right, not exactly
