I asked another question about xsl's uses, and had not one answer that
would indicate the xsl wasn't needed.  Mine was from a publishing point
of view.

I'm beginning to think that those that wish xsl to go away are narrowly
concerned with their own application, and do not care that xml has more
than one application.

I think you're right.  I also think that most arguments against xsl
aren't well considered.
