Alain Couthure's XSLTForms actually makes use of the re-entrant capabilities of XSLT on the browser, and I've written a number of apps that use the native XSLT capability within a browser to handle very complex re-entrant applications, as have many other people. XSLT2 support in the browser would significantly enhance this capability - the biggest holdups in seeing more use there is the fact that Mozilla's XSLT engine [expletive deleted].

Not true (at least for XSLT 1; can't speak for XSLT 2). This is exactly what you need for an XSLT-driven XML editor, which was certainly one of the things XSLT was designed to enable. It is the reason why certain useful features were left out of XSLT (result tree fragments as node-sets). There have been implementations of this.
