Re:  Matching elements with specific multiple parents
Not exactly, but you could do: parent::*/parent::foo
Or the shorter version: ../parent::foo

Remember that the axis name (parent::, child::, etc.) just specifies a
"direction of travel" within the tree.  Each step can only contain a
single direction of travel and must specify what to select in that
