Sure. Any design lacks something because it is not everything.

If language A is different from language B, A lacks something in B and vice 
versa. Replace A and B with arbitrary programming language.

You can do stuff in ECMAScript that you can't do in XSL-T. And vice versa. You 
can do things in C++ that you cannot do in C#, and so on.
