The XSLT 1.1 spec is a first working draft, so I don't understand
why you're throwing in the towel already! :-)

The very nature of Working Drafts is to get user community
feedback *before* it's too late.

So far, on this thread, we've heard feedback from a few
XSLT processor implementors:

   FourThought, makers of 4XSLT (a Python XSLT 1.0 implementation)

   Unicorn Enterprises, maker of Unicorn XSLT (a C++ XSLT implementation)

   Daniel Veillard, maker of libxml-based XSLT processor (in C, I believe)

Other than the few good points about making the spec clearer,
the executive summary of the feedback seems to be "why are Java
and ECMAScript special?"

We encourage any additional feedback.
