yes XSL 3.0 seems to be a good mix of features, super congrats to the WG

lets face it, the days of getting your fav language inside of the
browser are over ... it wont be xsl (or perl, php, ruby, python or
whatever) ... it will be javascript and you have an alternative in
saxon-ce ;)

in certain respects, we may look back on xslt support in the browser
as an anamoly that actually hurt adoption in the long run ... unsure,
but XSLT is well suited for many tasks and is not going away anytime
soon.
