The trouble is,  to go back a week or so, there is insufficient
evidence that XSL FO *is* all-encompassing. If you reject it in favour
of XSLV for simple jobs, we have to be very sure that its up to the
really serious design/typesetting jobs. Which it does not appear to
me, and I am sure the XSL WG would agree that they have made
compromises already.

It is an indication of something that no-one from the XSL WG steps up
to defend their baby in this discussion :-} Perhaps if some of the
people working on it were a little more vocal and passionate about the
work, the publicity would show that its a GOOD thing?
