Agreed, and Jeni would be a slam-dunk IMO if she volunteers.

If we decide to start such discussion, do we do so on this list, or do we want 
to branch into an XSLT-DEV list?  If the latter, I suggest Sourceforge, or I 
could host the list (but I don't want to seem like I'm trying to take things 
over).  If we stay on this list, we should probably tag the posts with 
[EXT-DEV] or something like that so we can be distinguished from the "how do I 
group while I sort" question of the day.
