People have been asking about processing instructions. I also would like
to be able to catch individual characters, either to surpress them or to
transform them. The same holds for (external-data ...) nodes. What would
people think about a new kind of construction rule, unbundled from the
query feature:

(node class ...)


(node processing-instruction (...))

(node external-data (...))

(node char (empty-sosofo))

The first two need not slow down processing in a style-sheet at all. The
last might be a common form that could be optimized for.
