How far would you say the PHP with extensions stack can go to handle
the functionality of XSLT 2.0 - minus XSD integration? What things are
absolutely missing?

I suppose that even if the above is an easy task that doing something
like enforcing side-effects free usage of the extensions would be
basically impossible (especially given the aforementioned pragmatism
of php and that side-effects are allowed in extensions)
