Fantastic :) I didn't think that you hadn't thought it through - I
just wanted to see what the alternative mechanism might look like. I
really like the RDDL idea, especially as you've expanded it in later
messages. I love the language-neutral function description. I also
think the indirection will discourage people from just 'opting out' to
Javascript etc. when they can't see how to achieve something in XSLT.

It would be good to see it worked up into some kind of document...?
