It is only completely true in a world of idealism but not in a world
of realism. SAXON and AltovaXML together probably have 99.999% of the
market for XSLT 2.0 processors.

The third real XSLT 2.0 processor to appear will probably be made by
Microsoft. It is my guess that for simple usage the collection()
function will work like in SAXON and in AltovaXML.

Considering that Microsoft often walks an extra mile to make things
easier for users, it is also my guess that Microsoft will allow the
collection() function to read files saved by same stylesheet, just
like SAXON and AltovaXML have chosen to do.
