Since the W3C already defines documentation elements for schemas, why not just bring those over into XSLT 2.0.

A brief illustration is at http://www.xml.com/pub/a/2000/11/29/schemas/part1.html?page=7

Bringing these over into XSLT would require two new elements: xsl:annotation and xsl:documentation. Nesting <xsl:documentation> within a parent <xsl:annotation> element might seem like overkill, since the <xs:appinfo> element from schemas is probably superfluous, but it would allow for the easy future addition of other types of documentation-related elements.

An XSLT processor would be expected to quietly ignore any children of <xs:annotation> which it didn't recognize.
