XPath 3.0 is now very stable, there's a very complete test suite, and Saxon is
100% conformant (well, it was last Thursday; there's always a trickle of spec
bugs and Saxon bugs that makes that figure oscillate between 99.99% and

XSLT 3.0 has not yet reached that level of stability. There are some parts
Saxon doesn't implement at all yet (notably the "packaging" features), there
are some parts where Saxon hasn't caught up with the latest changes, and there
some parts where Saxon implements features or changes to features that the WG
hasn't published yet. It's a work in progress.
