Didn't work :( I've tried patterns that logically should produce *all*
ancestor attributes also, didn't work either.

I'm leaning towards there's a bug that doesn't let through attribute values
through the ancestor function but I *really* hope that isn't the case
because then there would be no way at all currently to access parent
attributes afaik.
