I see. I'm looking forward to fully switching to XSLT 2.0 (rec) and Saxon 7.x (stable). Then, among many other benefits, I don't need to decide between a processor-specific extension, an unimplemented EXSLT feature, or the 1.1 draft syntax, or do feature detection, but instead rely on a W3C rec for multi document output.

Can you estimate the timeframe for XSLT 2.0 to become a recommendation, and for Saxon's implementation of it to become stable? ("production level quality")
