| The XSL specification does not formally define an output
| language. It defines a concept called a "result tree." That result
| tree has no serialization syntax. XML is an obvious syntax for
| engines that want to serialize the output tree, but that doesn't
| mean that an XSL implementation needs to output that tree in XML or
| any other syntax.

| Hmm ... in that case, it needs to be clarified that XML is the
| serialisation syntax.

I don't think that's a good idea, since it limits what XSL can be used
for. People have already used XSL to produce TeX and groff and I think
those are worthwhile uses of XSL.
