I agree this is will happen in an ideal world.  In the interm, we still
need a more stable language to use while XSLT grows.  One of our major
problems is how to finalize the development of web based applications
which will be viewed with a commercial browser today. No browser at this
point in time fully supports all the functions available to designers
via XSLT.  While we wait for this process to complete, it is comforting
to have access to familiar tools like javascript.  While we klodge away
at code in JS, it helps define the future needs of the XSLT spec based
on real world applications.

That's a scary thought!

Agreed!  It also needs to be powerful.
