I have two questions about these requirements: 1. It seems that the following two requirements contradict each other: "Language bindings MUST be provided for Java and ECMAScript " and "A processor SHOULD NOT be required to implement the portable extension function binding for any particular language " 2. Could someone please, explain what is the meaning of "inline extension function implementation" ("Extension function implementations MUST be allowed both inline as well as externally ")? In my understanding an inline implementation of an extension function will take the source code of this extension function from a node of the stylesheet (hence inline) and interpret it. This is currently done in msxml with scripting languages-based extension functions. However, it seems to me to be obviously prohibitively expensive in terms of efficiency (speed) to apply a similar inline processing approach towards a compiled language - based extension function (e.g. Java-based). In other words, will inline extension functions written in Java be allowed and will the processor have to invoke javac before being able to call this extension function?
