How about providing some real comparison figures, rather than just
superlatives? From your website it appears that it isn't actually available
yet, apart from to a select few, so I'm not sure what pushing it on this
list is supposed to achieve.

DGXT is optimized and implemented in C/C++ (although java bindings
are available for simple plug-in replacement for those using java). 
It's fast.

XSLJIT is the first JIT compiler for XSLT and it delivers 
order-of-magnitude improvements in performance over 
interpreters. We just announced the ability to do XSLT at fast
ethernet wire-speed (~100 Mbits/sec.), which is more than 10 
times faster than the best available XSLT interpreters.
It's *really* fast.

DGXT does support some common extensions, I am not sure if the
API's would be the same.
