I also couldn't agree wholesale with every aspect of the petition, or that I would have worded things the same way; but the conclusion I come to is the same, and by similar reasoning. However, I think it would help our case if it made more clear the fact that we understand that xsl:script technically adds no new functionality, because implementors already are able to support embedded scripting using the standard extension mechanisms (eg. msxsl:script). Thus a good analogy Joerg Pietschmann: > Having said this, well, the only motive for withholding xsl:script > would be to prevent innocent users from shooting themselves.

(http://www.biglist.com/lists/xsl-list/archives/200102/msg00928.html) So perhaps, Uche, you could state more clearly up-front that we understand this distinction.
