I am probably wasting my time but I want to point out that the current
organization of the XSL specification is VERY CONFUSING to my users,
students and readers and extremely FRUSTRATING to me. There is a
generalized transformation language. There is a formatting DTD. They will
probably work beautifully together someday but they do NOT BELONG IN THE
SAME SPECIFICATION any more than XSL and XLink do.

I know we've been over this before and it is probably not useful to start
a long thread of "me toos" and "I agrees" but this is a fundamental flaw
in the two languages that we know as XSL. Please put aside the political
expediency of one spec. in favor of the clarity of two.
