I'd rather have a report of results of the various XPath expressions, including nontrivial sub expressions. Of course expressions which always resulted in an empty node set are of particular interest, but there are also expressions in filters and such. This gets near the "better debuggers" idea though: put the cursor in the IDE on an expression and get the value(s) (with context, if necessary) from the last run.
