Since that blog entry they have had a change of heart, they are actively seeking use cases for XSLT 2.0, where XQuery would not help.

This has come about due to continual pressure from from customers.

If anyone has any good real life use cases please send them in, or pass them to me and I will forward them on.

I believe Microsoft have already stated that they do not intend to
introduce support for XSL 2.0 at any time :(

They seem to think XQuery 1.0 and XPath 2.0 will suffice

go figure

Has anyone heard of other plans for XSLT 2.0 processors? Saxon 8 is
fantastic, but it would be nice to see XSLT 2 in Sablotron, Xalan and
libxsl (who knows? maybe even MSXML?) as well. Any news or information
would be much appreciated.
