Quite funny to read this lengthy thread *after* XMLPrague, at which people
spoke about using XSLT 1.0 to convert XQuery into JavaScript (to allow
XQuery support in XSLTForms), implement template ruling into XQuery using
higher-order functions, using the already mentioned Carrot that in theorie
can be translated to both XSLT and XQuery (probably could be implemented
in both as well), JSON integration into XQuery and XForms. Heck there was
even a Demojam of someone who wrote an XSLT 2.0 processor in JavaScript..

Yes, there's lots of people both individuals and corporate who enjoy doing exciting things that are new. The number of people prepared to stick at it and do version 2 of anything is much smaller, and they tend to ask questions about whether it will make any money.
