Roger,

This actually asks whether or not stand-alone XPath 3.0 processors exist.

I don't know of such. I am aware of what seems to be a standalone
XPath 2.0 processor -- PsychoPath:

http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&frm=1&source=web&cd=2&cad=rja&ved=0CC4QFjAB&url=http%3A%2F%2Fpsychopath.sourceforge.net%2Freport.pdf&ei=xP2HUMbPBoqbjALUp4HgBg&usg=AFQjCNHLhTrA-Nl6RYzr1yRg2OZEt-rmrw&sig2=4-xKKGnoqrxuc-5_1wUGzw

and hope they will extend their work to XPath 3.0.
