Again I think you'll find that people in the XML-space who *have* 
experience with XSLT and *are* aware of that paradigm will find this a 
useful context.  I think not giving that proper context makes the 
description of GRDDL as inarticulate as the acronym itself (for those who 
are aware of how XSLT is typically used with XML vocabularies).

We need to be aware we are bridging two technological communities with 
their own paradigms, patterns, and best practices.
