I have a set of questions regarding the level of streaming XPath
support. Please answer them.

1). Is there any documentation on what subset of XPath 1.0 does libxml2
support in streaming mode?

  No. Basically the one needed for XSD support.

2). Does libxml2 internally construct DOM for streamable XPath


3). Does libxml2 support only forward looking XPath and if so what

  of course only forward. Again subset needed for XSD. See the XSD spec.
It was mostly designed as an internal feature, the driver was that spec.
