This proposal is extremely important. Its incorporation into XSLT 2.1
would provide the capability to have separately compiled libraries (as
opposed to a main stylesheet == "separate application") of functions.

I have a remark about making sure a specific mode in the module cannot
accidentally be selected (this is not the same as overriden !) by an
external template with

The existing text ( (d) in the Description, and (f) in the second post
by Dr. Kay) does not rule out such a possibility.

In particular, there is a need that a mode with a name defined in the
module be accessible, but only *by name*, to exteranal
<xsl:apply-templates> instructions. At the same time, any external
<xsl:template> that has
  mode ="#all"
should not be available for selection in a mode defined in the specific module.
