I have tested XQuery Updates in Saxon SA 9.1 and it works like a
dream. I was wondering if something similar is going to be available
in XSLT? How can XSLT do without such a killer feature?

Such a feature will be the killer of a nice, functional language, I agree... :)

XQuery Update is still a 100% functional language - it's pretty good at
succinctly expressing transforms that would otherwise need an identity
transform and some number of exception templates.

This comment makes no sense. It is like saying a pogo stick is pretty good at getting you from point A to point B that would otherwise require a car.
