This is an interesting assertion.  The work on XSL was started by Jon
Bosak, who put a lot of effort into DSSSL and led the informal DSSSL-o
profile group.  All three of DSSSL's editors (Sharon Adler, Anders
Berglund, and James Clark) sit on the XSL WG; one co-chairs it, and
another edits half of the XSL spec.

How this disrespects, rather than learns from, DSSSL eludes me.
