Why that's our selling point!
All we have to do is rebrand XSLT with a nifty label that showcases it
as a paradigm-shifting language. Don't call it "a stylesheet language
for transforming XML," call it "A directed-Graph-Object Language."

And when someone asks what a "directed-Graph Object" is, don't say
"It's xml." Say "It's a kind of ultra-robust, annotated link-list
datatype that allows multiple outgoing references from each entry!"

Just think of all the amazing stuff you can do with an "ultra-robust,
annotated link-list datatype that allows multiple outgoing references
from each entry!"
