A reasonable analysis. Where users identify a limitation in XSLT, I like to explore how that limitation might be lifted within the conformance rules, but I'm well aware that this gives users a new problem of deciding whether to exploit the extensions or stick within the standard. I like to think that the primary purpose of the extensions is to explore ideas which if they prove successful might make it into a future version of the standard, but users should certainly be aware that if better ideas come along, I will ditch them unceremoniously.
