Description
javax.xml.xpath supports explicit data types defined by XPath specification version 1.0. However, it is missing an important feature that org.w3c.dom.xpath provides, that is, any type. Without any type, javax.xml.xpath assumes that an explicit type is always known, which is not true in some circumstances. 

Support for any type needs to be added.
