If you write

<some-outer-lre xsl:version="1.1">
  <xsl:document ...>

Then a 1.0 processor should ignore it, just as it ignores an extension
element. I agree the need for an enclosing literal result element to hold
the xsl:version attribute is a pain, and I've never understood why it's

But if there are problems with this it sounds as if there is a valid reason
for reintroducing saxon:output (or saxon:document) as a synonym, in the same
way as I did with xsl:script.
