That won't work because you can have a doc that looks like this:
Which bar element would //a:bar refer to? Would /a:foo/a:other/a:bar find an element?
It just doesn't work.
The xmllint shell does need someway to specify prefix<->namespace mappings.
It not very useful without that.

that was it. I knew I knew it, there was just too much info at once ;-) But why can't it simply register all
the namespaces from the document itself in xmlXPathNewContext?

No, it doesn't work. About the only expression I can get to work is something like //*. This will return

You *must* provide the namespace declaration to the prefix used.
Read the example it shows how to bind namespaces to XPath evaluation context !
