I think arguably it already affects XSL 1.0

XSLT relies on an XML parser to construct an input tree for it.
(due to differences discussed recently on this list, it may not really
do this and it may build the tree itself, but that is an ignorable
detail) The arser _has_ to be XML namespace aware, it also has to 
report the base URI of every node (or at least most, as laid out in the
xpath spec). If you use an XML parser that is XML base aware I would
imagine that XSLT just gets passed a tree in which the base URI of some
nodes have been affected, but it doesn't need to "know" that.
