The single most pressing problem we've got with XML right now is the poor state of the XPath extensions in contrib/xml2. If we don't see a meaningful step forward in that area, a new implementation of the xml datatype isn't likely to win acceptance.
xpath_table is severely broken by design IMNSHO. We need a new design, but I'm reluctant to work on that until someone does LATERAL, because a replacement would be much nicer to design with it than without it.
But I don't believe replacing the underlying XML/XPath implementation would help us fix it at all.
