Hiding insane Javascript tricks behind a clean XML vocabulary and a simple PI
is a BRILLIANT idea.
In my opinion, you should write a position paper to detail it.
So developpers can benefit from your experience and spend as few time
as possible resolving problems you have already solved.

This is really what web developpers want: clean libraries to manage their HTML.
And JS dispatched via XSLT is the perfect team.
