Interesting. It occurs to me that it isn't that dissimilar from the approach used by Dimitre Novatchev in building FXSL. And I think there's probably a point at which the mode/template model runs out of steam and you want to start using maps of function items - essentially XSLT 3.0's implementation of an Object.
