   Perhaps I should rephrase this as: "of all the sufficiently general
solutions out there right now, DSSSL has the greatest potential to
handle all but the most specialized formatting and transformation
   However, you're right... there is still the potential to discover
weaknesses in DSSSL.  However, I'd be surprised if there were many (if
any) that are any deeper than a lacking in flow object functionality,
as, I suspect, any problems in the handling of mathematics would be.
These are easily fixed with no modifications to DSSSL itself, as flow
objects are really a separate thing.
