XQuery seems an even better tool, but then it's just a matter of parsing
attribute content for brackets and slashes, and not using the  XPointer
mechanism, so Perl with do just as good a job. And it may just be better
done without having to parse those brackets, and looking at @to and
@from and friends.

Hugh Cayless presented a (partial) XSLT solution for XPointers at
Balisage 2010.
