Re: Note from XSL WG on Extension Concerns

I'd like to second Leigh's voice about the standardization of the Java
API which is the second most important blocker (after the "pure" XLST
extensions themselves) for the portability of XLST based applications
but also to plead the case of SAX like interfaces as implemented by XT.

In fact, the best solution would be to allow the 3 levels of
representation of a node set or result tree fragment (string, SAX events
and DOM), each of them having its set of usage.

The SAX level is very convenient to use for mapping java objects to and
from node sets and I think we should definitely keep it as an option.

The other thing I'd like to add is that these interfaces should be
defined on a consistent way for the 3 "places" where you can us them in
a XSLT transformation :

  - As an input for a XML or XSLT document.
  - As parameters (call & return) for java methods.
  - As an output to implement output methods.
