David, I wish I could, but I'll need help from everybody, especially from people,
who are XSLT experts and native English speakers (like you and Jeni). I haven't done
this by now, because I somehow have the feeling that such a proposal is
pre-determined to fail. I'll never be able to write like Jeni, and even her
proposals have mixed chances of success...

For a start how do you think a general layout of such proposal should look like?
What sections and in what order?

Maybe we can start at least working on this section by section?
