IMHO, th best way to ensure
1.
the further flourishing of XSLT as a professional and
rich Transformation-Language , and
2.
the best possible portability of XSLTs
is
to
1.
include all features neede for transformation of
XML-data (and don't leave all special needs or
advanced features to Java etC.)
2.
specify no bindings or extension-mechanisms.
If XSLT will be good, neither bindings nor extensions
nor other languages are needed to transform XML.

It is true that most developers won't bother learning
any advanced XSLT-stuff when it is specified by the
spec as being valid to use their favourite
Programming-language with it.

I would like to be able to code all transformations of
XML with pure XSLT, to have portable
transformation-files.
