Yes, exactly. Typical scenario is you want to run XSLT 2.0 server side with a
simple PHP application on an off-the-shelf cloud server, the kind of hosting
where using Java increases the cost from #5/month to #50/month.

Or you've got an existing PHP application using libxslt and you're really
feeling the XSLT 1.0 pain, but you don't want the new pain of configuring a
bridge to Java.
