By this I gather you mean many other specs depending on it - as opposed to
applications? I suppose that's a consistent measure. It is however an
unstable one. Suppose the W3C will release dependent specs in the future? Of
course that would be a problem only if someone else specifies XSLT features
in the meanwhile, which I find unlikely.

Note that using the number of applications using the feature is also
unstable - we hope, for example, that the number of XSLT applications will
be growing. Still, this (number of applications) makes more sense to me then
using the number of specs.

At any rate, either of these measures means we won't see plug-and-play XSLT
processors for a long while. Well, if nobody else is worried about being
able to switch processors, who am I to complain? After all I'll be getting
paid for writing the wrappers for each new relevant XSLT processor in the
mean while.

Share & Enjoy,
