ahh xsl:initial-template, I like it, much better than
default-initial-template="main"  : )

Regarding the api, is it possible to not need the -it switch at all,
and just always start with the xsl:initial-template if its present?

I see it as replacing initial template and mode altogether, much
cleaner to just have a single entry point and go from there based on
parameter values.
