 With scripts, 
  it is implied that a full implementation of the interpreter
  is availabele. 

No, not at all. If you use xsl:script to bind the same extension
namespace to a java method, some vbscript inlined in the stylesheet and
a perl function accessed by some qname, then you are not implying that
an XSL system implements java, perl and vbscript. You are implying that
you hope that the XSL system might implement one of them.

Forget xsl:script is called script it isn't about adding scripting 
where before there is none, it is about offering an idirection that
allows different implementations of functions bound to the same
namespace URI so that extension functions in that namespace may be
portable to more than one processor.
