  But it is not always possible to use XPath sequences.  In particular
with other sequences, as they cannot be embedded.

  Maybe a system using markers as you showed -- something like (<q/>,
1, 2, <q'/>, 3, <q'/>, 4, <q/>) -- could be usefull in some
circumstencies.  But this cannot be used by a library as a black-box
object passed to the user.  Because the user cannot add it to a
sequence for example.

  I think I have an entry on my blog that show a practical example of
the non-usability of sequences:
(see the "Problematic" section).
