I think, that the new xsl:evaluate instruction is the most harmful addition,
it either rules out the idea of compilation of xslt in native/IL/other
code, or demands for interpreter or compiler to be available at
stylesheet execution time.
This makes execution environment much more heavier than necessary.
But probably the worst effect will be from developers who will widely
practice the "easiest" way to achieve desired effect with dynamic xpath.
On the other hand indirect function calls introduced in xpath 2.1 give
enough power to model dynamic flexibility, if required.
