...I have the feeling that a group of people has the goal of making XSLT a ridiculous language.
If they are, they only make that most users continue to use xslt1.0 and that xslt2.0 might have the same fate of the xslt1.1
Which is a pity. BTW 1.1 was discontinued by the WG, I'm not aware it fell onto hard grounds on the user's side.
Why can't we have xsl:result-document, xsl:function, a bunch of useful XPath functions and get rid of RTF without all the NEW! and ENHANCED! PSVI dependent and other grammar-changing XPath stuff? I can't see much of a dependency.
