Oh dear. My response to almost any survey is to say "you're asking the wrong questions".

"Please rank the importance of each xslt version".

You need to ask people how important it is to them or their employers, not how important they think it is to the world in general. Otherwise they are guessing the information you are trying to discover.

You need to explain what you mean by "importance": it's about what the impact/value is, or is likely to be, on some timescale. What timescale?

And you need to distinguish "It is important to me that this technology should be available" from "I don't think this technology will have much effect on us because I don't think it will be available on the timescale in which we need it".
