No, I think he was thinking about the (it's in scratchpad) 
XPathDirectoryGenerator, which basically allows you to run an XPath 
query on a set of documents.

However, Stefano is right pointing out the issue of automatic vs. manual 
descriptors. I'm a bit biased towards the automatic solution, but it's 
true that manual work tends to be more accurate (hmmm... stone in the 
lake: how about a namespaced "book.xml" fragment in every document?).
