Agreed.  Given typical XSLT use-case, I think grouping primitives and regular 
expressions should be added to the language.  Then we should try to get XSLT 
implementors to talk about important extensions that go beyond understandable 
XSLT WG conservatism.  Then, if after a while this clearly is not working, we 
can consider hacking the language to put in xsl:script.
