  heh, don't get depressed !
First until XSLT-2.0 is complete one should not "discard" it, maybe
providing more feedback is needed. In the meantime EXSLT is one way to 
label those "common" extensions. I understand that Michael want to focuse
on XSLT-2 development. Maybe someone can simply write the patch needed
to get Saxon to implement exslt:document, based on the existing Saxon
extension (which I implemented too) this should not be too hard. Having
EXSLT widely deployed will give the XSL group the time to finish XSLT-2
and XPath-2.
