I don't think that a 2.0 processor should enforce the node-set rule for
backwards compatibility.  It should still honour the extension function
if its present in the 1.0 stylesheet, but not require it.

This will ease the transition from 1.0 to 2.0, allowing users to still
code in 1.0 but take advantage of the best bits of 2.0 (no node-set,
xhtml output etc).
