Thank you, Wolfgang! The example was maybe too minimal - what I'm 
looking for is for an xml conversion; I want to define a command that 
will do different things depending on the chapter it is in, so I thought 
\getmarking was the way to go (with a \doifelse test). But 
\namedstructurevariable is as well.
