 Well, no browser has its own support for XSLT 2.0 and theirs simply
can't compete with Saxon CE.

A logical conclusion for a browser vendor is to incorporate Saxon CE
in their product -- this will give them some cutting edge advantage
over the competition  while at the same time significantly enhancing
the functionality and usefulness of their browser.

Alas, I am not one of the browser vendors... but these people probably
can make logical conclusions?

is that they should simply dump support altogether. After all, if THEY'VE
never used it, they can't imagine why anybody would... ugh.
