Both RenderX and Antenna House .NET connections ... what is the barrier to commercial tools?

This makes me happy. Now I can get rid of commercial reporting tools and
use some open source implementation (if I find one).

Can you consider only getting rid of commercial proprietary reporting tools? By using a commercial XSL-FO tool you have the protection of non-proprietary technology investment and flexibility to move your intellectual property to other implementations.

Note there is more than one open source XSL-FO tools: FOP and xmlroff are two that come to mind right away.

Good luck in your project!
