The XSLT 1.0 specification provides a mechanism for calling extension
functions, that is, functions provided by the implementor or by the user,
but it says nothing about how such functions should be written or made
available, this is left entirely to the implementor.

The XSLT 1.1 working draft attempted to define standard mechanisms (but
mechanisms which implementors were free to omit if they chose) for binding
extension functions written in Java or JavaScript. The decision to give
special treatment to two particular languages was unpopular with a number of
users and implementors, and is likely to be dropped from the core XSLT 2.0
specification, though my personal hope is that such bindings will eventually
be standardised in other, separate, documents.
