Bit sweeping Andrew, but it always appeared as
a fairly natural extension to XSLT, to have
it operate on databases rather than files, to keep the dataheads
happy and answer the users who want to play
with dirty great datasets.
I'm surprised it's not on the agenda for the WG
If you really want XSLT to work directly against the database
you could use collection() to return the documents.
for example, you would have to write a CollectionURIResolver.
I don't fully understand XMLDB, but it seems you could create
an XMLDB CollectionURIResolver in Saxon and could access any
XMLDB compatible database today. Or write a specialized
CollectionURIResolver to any existing database you needed to
