I'm one of them :-)

I see you've thought it over carefully, and although I still think that
there are great benefits, I agree with you that in this case it might not be
the best thing to do. BTW, thanx for replying!

I know you did. I understood your suggestion, I thought about it, and I
disagree.  Discussions on XSL-List serve at least two functions; the
original poster gets a question answered and other people learn what sorts
of questions people have (and by implication, the things they are doing with
XSL) and how the questions can be addressed.
A list specific to XSLT 2, that addressed only questions that the poster
knew were about XSLT 2, might serve the first function very well, but I
think it would erode the ability of the list to serve the second function.

This second function, general education of people interested in XSL, seems
be a very valuable function of XSL-List; I get messages from lurkers
regularly who tell me how much they learn simply by reading the list.
