Regarding the spec, times are changing. The XSL FO Recommendation
does not look relatively complex anymore; in fact, it is one of
relatively small and simple W3C Recommendations. These days.

And, as an implementor, I think that it is clean and consistent,
which is particularly amazing given the fact it was developed with
so many objectives in mind.

XSL FO is a success of XSL working group; XSL 1.1 process seems
to be promissing too; that is, they are going standardize features
already implemented, or add things which have clear and well-defined
use cases. If it will not be spoiled, it will be a good one.
