Well, there's XPath for a standard:

ElementPath deviates from it in its namespace syntax (it allows "{ns}tag" where XPath requires "p:tag" prefixes), but that's about it. All other differences are basically needless limitations of ElementPath.

In fact, I had noticed these two limitations in lxml, so I implemented them for the next release. And since ElementPath in ElementTree is still mostly the same as ElementPath in lxml, here's the same thing for ET.
