>why not ?

Because when people look at xsl for the first time they see xsl:for-each and
think aaahh that's what i need it looks familiar. It usualy isn't what they
want at all. They then start adding enormous <xsl:choose statements all over
the place to get round having an <xsl:for-each. Then they put more
<xsl:for-each in <xsl:for-each with long xpaths. It gets really ugly. So I
just say Beginner rule #1 *NEVER* use xsl:for-each
