While I'm not a fan of EXSL, I feel offended for them -- they never intended to propose extension functions for incrementing an xsl:variable -- or am I wrong Jeny?
Incrementing a variable is not a non-XSLT problem due to two reasons:
1. It is not "non-XSLT" XSLT -- programmers write nice programs while still being able to have the right values in the right xsl:variables
2. It is not a problem.
On should first learn XSLT, and only after achieving some experience and understanding try to avoid raising non-existing problems.
Remember: if you consider the inability to increment a xsl:variable a problem, this means 100% that you do not have proper basic experience and understanding of XSLT. If this is the case, the best way is to study -- read a good book (e.g. Mike Kay's "XSLT Programmer's Reference"), study a few XSLT FAQs (Dave Pawson's is the most extensive one).
