My point is that none of those really matter to me all that much.

you are so lucky that you don't need these new features. I know a guy who only uses forward-paths with XPath 1 (my/path/here). Once I told him he could use predicates, count(), parent:: etc his queries became much more complex. He later admitted that he wished to have remained ignorant as now his projects' complexity grew over his head (though that may say more about the guy than it says of the xpath technology).

Yes, and both are quite a bit more complex than using xsltproc. :-( Classpath is evil.

Saxon comes as a .NET version too. If you consider java evil, and some day you want to try xslt 2 for whatever reason, you can try saxon with .NET. But gestalt is there, too, and is getting closer; XML Spy has a built in xslt 2 engine, but lacks a lot of compliance; there must be others I am unaware of yet.
