Yes, I know this, and use them quite a bit in my stylesheets. I was referring to the higher-order functions that Dmitre is interested in. The FXSL docs assume a fairly specific audience that is not me.

the FXSL approach is steeped in what is known as functional programming,
which places function and function composition at the heart of
programming (flow, arch, data structure...)....by porting some of the
most popular functions from Lisp/Haskell Dimitre is able to draw from a
very deep well and well researched field of computing to solve problems
by using a functional approach.

OK, but what kind of practical problems can it help solve for XSLT programmers?
