In the past I've considered doing this in Saxon. But I'm undecided whether
the attribute value should be an AVT (therefore always yielding a string) or
an XPath expression (in which case any value can be passed, but strings need
to be written in double-nested quotes, e.g. arg="'London'"). Any views?

(Though actually, I've also held off because I'm reluctant to implement
non-portable extensions if they provide nothing more than a saving in
keystrokes ...)
