You mean like adding path elements to a <path>, or nested selectors to
a <selector>? That would be useful indeed.

If attributes can be changed as well, that's not aumentation anymore,
but editing, no?
Can only "top-level" elements be augmented, or id'd nested elements as well?
Can one "prevent" augmentation while still having an id attribute?
(like final="true")

Stefan would like to see the code, but I'd like to see build snippets
from the "user" side of it ;) --DD
