I would like to ask, digression or related, is,

 What applications exist that take advantage of XML/XSLT and the
related technologies?

DB2 and Oracle have extensive XML features, there are XForms
application servers, XML Pipeline libraries, SVG -- the list is
complete from persistence to rendering -- and altogether it is
possible to write a entire applications in markup languages with a
complete and consistent data model, especially if your content is
multi-language text.

Anyway, I agree that the issue is far broader than XSLT versions, but
this list may be the best target for those who need to utilize the
latest versions.

Well, back to work mapping SQL to objects to XML to HTML and then
manipulating that with JavaScript. ;)
