you don't have to. only the stylesheet which uses 1.1 needs to declare
it as such. so you can have a 1.0 which imports a 1.1, and it
does what is expected

in practice, how many problems can you see? i find 3

 - use of the output splitting. thats easy to pin down and isolate
 - use of odd bits of Java extension. thats going to need some careful
   work, but how widespread is it?
 - the real one is seeing whether some bits of the stylesheet can now
   be rewritten more elegantly using (what was) node-set(). that, I
   think, is not so easy

surely it depends how carefully you have written your stylesheets? I
have always tried, for `public' stylesheets, to NOT use extensions,
and keep my usage of them to non-public, non-production occasions.
