Q

Does XPath define any APIs other than XPath functions?

Does XPath specification define any APIs (like DOM) apart from XPath functions? In other words, can we term a particular expression evaluator as an XPath implementation, if it evaluates XPath expressions?
If it complies with the XPath specification, then yes, it would be an XPath implementation. There is no reason why an XPath implementation could not provide an API, in fact, most of them do to allow you to programatically access XPath expression evaluation.
