How isn't it a good idea from a functionality point of view... what
language is better than XSLT at creating markup?
Standalone schema-aware transforms, generating strict xhtml by
transforming xml returned from various queries (where the xslt, xml,
and xquery are all stored in the same database) could well be the most
common use of 2.0 in the future.
I hope it is, anyway.
