If you don't provide one, XSLT's default template should be applied. That 
may or may not do what you want, and may or may not be the fastest 
solution depending on where you want to start _real_ processing.

Nope. 1.1 is dead; long live 2.0. 

Some of 1.1's features made it into the XSLT 2.0 working draft. Xalan is 
starting to prototype that version (on a branch, not in the main-line 
development), so if you Really Need those and are willing to use highly 
experimental code you could try that and see whether we've gotten to the 
stuff you want...
