My XPointer is allowed by the grammar, and as far as I can tell or
remember there is no language in the spec that states that this is
illegal, nor can I see any good reason why it should be.
would also be allowed by the grammar and as far as I can recall the
spec doesn't disallow that either, although there's nothing to
indicate how this should be handled.
I've pointed out the latter problem to the editors together with many
others. In general the current XPointer spec is not very precise or
complete, but hopefully the next version will be.
