Yeah, that would definitely limit things a bit. Have you add a look at the Dynamic Language Runtime at all? It's open-sourced under the MSPL (the most liberal (BSD-like) license MSFT offers), runs on Mono quite well, and if the hooks were provided you could gain the advantage of writing extension functions in any DLR supported language which at present time is IronPython, IronRuby, Vista Smalltalk, (compiled) Javascript, and VBx (Dynamic VB.) This would also pave the way for providing in-browser support via Silverlight which has the DLR embedded directly into its core. And as per my last response to Abel, could provide the perfect bridge to both SpiderMonkey and Tamarin as well. That's quite the language and technology span!

Of course at this stage of the conversation I think we've reached the edges of what can be tolerated as on topic for XSL-List. I'll need to track down the mailing list first (shouldn't be too hard ;-), but I'll move this conversation to the Gestalt mailing list where it would obviously be more appropriate. Abel, I assume you are subscribed to the Gestalt mailing list as well?
