Nevertheless, xsl:script allows for precisely that through it's src attribute. Given that, don't you think that relying on extension namespaces pointing to an RDDL document containing 1) information on how a human being can get the extension should he want to do it by hand and 2) a pointer to implementations of the extension (possibly in several languages so that the processors can choose the one they know about, or their favoured one) should the processor be allowed to fetch extensions automatically (possibly only within a trusted network) is far superior to what xsl:script offers ? -- robin b.
