[xsl] What is the future of XSL-FO

Below is an excerpt of an explanation for XSLT, took out from

"XSL is now generally referred to as XSL Formatting Objects (XSL-FO), to
distinguish it from XSLT. The future of XSL-FO as a standard is uncertain,
because much of its functionality overlaps with that provided by cascading
style sheets (CSS) and the HTML tag set. If cross-vendor compatibility is
important, you might want to avoid XSL-FO until it becomes a standard fully
accepted by the Worldwide Web Consortium."

Can I consider valid the declaration above? I really want to use XLS-FO as
standard in the company I work for, as base document format for report
generation, but this declaration could make me hesitate to. I would
appreciate any thoughts.

Thank you.
