Wow! That's something we in the document world have been hacking in one
way or another for ages. People who aren't in our world often tell us
we don't need it ("just do everything in UNICODE" they say, but that
is often impractical).

This is wonderful. (I haven't been following XSLT 2.0 in detail, being
under the impression that is was totally focused on data and we
document types were going to be able to  ignore it.  Perhaps I'd
better start reading.)
