I have toyed with that idea (path objects) when I was thinking about
configurable separators. The reason why I used it was because I thought it
might complicate interface, at least conceptually, if not syntactically.
Simplicity of use was generally #1 goal, otherwise people would just prefer
to use MSXML, Expat, TinyXML etc. I might need to reconsider it if I add key
policies to traits.
