Re: [xsl] ANNOUNCE: Petition to withdraw xsl:script from XSLT 1.1
| >The 'src' attribute purports no magic beyond the standard URI mechanism. | | And, to paraphrase, how is that not look-it-up(DNS,locator | services,repositories,etc)-and-magically-download(HTTP,FTP,etc)-the-right(Co | ntent-negociation,browser/processor sniffing,etc)-(trusted?)-etc-etc-etc ? It's uri-specific, and generic to all URI's, not URI's being used by XSLT or in particular URI's being used by the <xsl:script> element. That is, it's not XSLT processor specific "magic" which is the way I interpreted the various suggestions that an XSLT processor would "look up and find" it's own extension function implementations. If you are saying that there is an: rddl://.... URI protocol scheme that's RDDL aware, then <xsl:script> would already support it by virtue of its being a valid URI.
