I see, you still want to return the parent node, but check for
properties of children with unknown names. Yes, this is not possible
with JCR XPath. With JQOM/JCR-SQL2 it should be possible, but I don't
know how to build that query ;-)

Another solution could be to enhance the content model that the child
nodes have well-known names. Or, the solution that is a bit ugly, use
a query that returns the child nodes and on the nodes in the result
set go up the ancestor path.
