--- Comment #35 from Norman Walsh <ndw@nwalsh.com> ---
The XML Core WG considered this issue again at our face-to-face[1]. We
recognize that it's too late to attempt to get normative changes into this
version of the spec. We're still committed to helping move something forward
normatively in this or another spec in the future.

In the meantime, we suggest a note along the following lines (editor, salt to
taste) in section 5.6.3:

  Note: Many existing user agents support the 'text/xsl' (or
  'application/xslt+xml') style sheet type, with XSLT [ref] as the
  relevant supported styling language. When the browsing context has a
  StyleSheet of that style sheet type, such agents transform the
  current XML document using the XSLT stylesheet retrieved from the
  style sheet location (typically supplied via an xml-stylesheet
  processing instruction) and rendering (or otherwise processing) the
  document that results from that transformation. The precise details
  of this process will be defined in a future specification.
