| For those who do not know, the new XSL requirements draft is at:
| It's going to be one hell of a language. I notice that it is supposed to

| I hope it is built very incrementally because the world can't wait for the
| Uber-stylesheet language. But I think that the participants know that.

It's important to note that the requirements document
intentionally casts an extremely wide net:

  ... [the requirements document] makes no statement about what
  specific requirements will be addressed in any particular
  Working Draft or version of XSL.

  In accordance with good language design practice, the full set
  of requirements are presented so that, at every step in the
  design process, design choices are made taking the full set of
  requirements into account, rather than just a subset of those
  requirements currently being met. It is the XSL WG's expectation
  that initial drafts/versions of XSL will address only a subset
  of these requirements.
