My goodness - such a lot of blood from such a small cut!

This announcement seems to have done something remarkable: at least
for a moment in one forum it seems to have erased all concerns
about XSLT 2.0 and rallied EVERYONE to it's defense.

How odd: until we saw this I heard quite a few concerns about
XSLT 2.0 and have had several conversations with developers I
respect who said that they were thinking of sticking with
XSLT 1.0 because the gains in 2.0 (for their applications) were
not worth the losses.  Now all of a sudden non-adoption of
XSLT 2.0 is "killing xslt".

Perhaps the folks at Microsoft were concerned that they would be criticized for adopting a controversial spec like XSLT 2.0 so they decided to rally support for it by announcing that they were not going to support it. Then they could change their minds and be heros instead of goats. ... Nahhhh. But it sounds good.
