level, from, and count in xsl:number

xsl number expr
Is there anything the level, from, and count attributes of xsl:number do
that can't be done more easily with the expr attribute and position()? 
I am looking at these three right now, and they seem to be superflous,
perhaps having been help over from the previous draft without a lot of
thought.  They're only used when expr isn't present. Is there any reason
not to make expr mandatory and remove level, from, and count from the
spec?
