Hi Colin,
  I appreciate your ideas..

I am requesting more clarity  for the rules of
stripping "white space only text nodes".. You are
saying, there is consensus. Do all XSL WG members have
an agreement to how Mr. Kay is explaining rules for
this to us? If WG members have agreement on this
point(rules for stripping white space text nodes), its
great! Then there should be no problem, providing more
clarity to this point.

If the agreement is not there, then there is a
problem! I know XSL WG members comprises of people
from Microsoft, Oracle, Sun, IBM and Mr. Kay himself.
So its Microsoft vs. all others! MS has already
implemented a default stripping behaviour for white
space text nodes in MSXML4(which Mr. Ken Holman, David
Carlisle and Mr. Kay are calling non-conformant). 

While Mr. Kay (in Saxon) and IBM people (in Xalan)
have implemented a preserving behaviour..

Both camps are seeming abiding by their old stand. And
the ambiguity is still there!
