I don't think you can get a significant spec done fast in W3C these days, especially one that tramples all over the space covered by existing specs. There are too many people who will want a say, and they will all slow you down. How long did XProc take? To do things fast, you need a small organization with a small number of stakeholders, and you need to be willing to accept that if you get it wrong, the world will simply ignore you. W3C is culturally indisposed to take that risk. Michael Kay Saxonica
