Certainly that is the case with some aspects of IE5b2, such as the
absence of process-children.

But I was really surprised to see, in the XSL stylesheet distributed
with the XML98 conference proceedings, an xsl:script element with
Javascript in there.

So in answer to the original query - probably a bit of both, and yes
lets hope that the final IE5 release is fully conformant, with any
proprietary extensions clearly marked out as such by being in a
different, non-xsl namespace.
