Thanks Mike,

It seems obvious to me now, that the ongoing effort to describe future XSLT extension functions
written in XSLT -- this would be very useful as ***purely requirements collection***.

It is also obvious (already showing in the contents of the corresponding threads) that going
beyond that (e.g. into language design) is counter-productive. 

In any case, the result of such "language design" is clearly not "XSLT extension functions
written in XSLT". And wouldn't it be misleading to disguise this new language as XSLT?
