Actually, this makes the survey results more significant. It indicates that
a majority of people who _believe/want_ XSL feel that the W3 organization
should do something about using XSL for general transformations. It does
represent the opinion of people who don't believe/want XSL - say, people who
are forced to use it for some reason - so?

Right, but Bibi would be justified in considering their opinion with regard
to his policy - more so then the opinion of members of an opposition party.

At any rate, I don't think this is going anywhere. The results and the votes
stand as their are, and everyone is free to interpret them to his heart's
content. I hope the W3 organization would take them seriously enough to make
some sort of an official stand on this issue (even if it is "the issue is
closed as it stands today"). If they decide there should be a re-examination
of the intent, I'm certain they'll employ their own - much better -
mechanisms to obtain the feedback of the users community.

Share & Enjoy,
