RE:  xsl:sort/@case-order feature missed
Yes, it's a reasonable requirement that there should generally be a value
for an attribute that has the same effect as omitting the attribute. (There
are overriding factors in some cases, e.g. the new separator attribute of
<xsl:value-of>, but that doesn't apply here.)

Please post it to xsl-editors so we get traceability of the requirement.
