I have a question that I've been wanting to ask for a while and thought today would be a pretty good day (for me anyways) to ask.

How come the current() function is part of the XSLT spec ant not XPath? It seems from what I've seen of it/how its been used, it would be more appropriate to be in XPath instead of being only available as XSLT. For example, in the case XPath only implementations how would a user do a comparison of two separate branches without resorting to some sort of extension function (which XPath doesn't deal with).

Just curious.
