Thus it occurs to me that it might be useful to start a community effort to standardize what the various vendors are doing unilaterally, using the EXSLT activity as a model.
This raises two questions:
1. Would anyone else in the user/integrator community be interested in contributing to such an effort?
2. Would the vendors be interested in contributing and implementing community-developed extensions?
This suggests to me that it is in everybody's interests to standardize the needed extensions in advance of formal refinements to the FO spec.
And of course it would be supremely cool if a single non-trivial FO instance could be used interchangably with all or most of the available FO implementations.
