Quite so. Extensibility (whether in the form of scripting or something else) will get into XSL if and when the XSL WG reaches consensus on a mechanism for providing extensibility. Flaming the W3C process may be a lot of fun but it won't help get extensibility into XSL. The way to help get extensibility into XSL is to provide useful, constructive input to the XSL WG that assists it in coming up with a design that it can reach consensus on. At this stage, the kind of input I would find most useful would be a representative selection of transformation problems that can't be solved using the current XSL WD and that one might reasonably expect to be able to solve with an extensibility mechanism. (If anybody steps up to this, please supply actual source and result XML documents so that there's no doubt exactly what the problem is.)
