--- Comment #28 from Norman Walsh <ndw@nwalsh.com> ---
The XML Core Working Group objects to the decision to mark discussion of the
XML stylesheet PI with type='text/xsl' as either "RESOLVED LATER" or
"HTML.next".

The stylesheet PI is widely supported and has been in use for a long time. It
is an important part of the browser API. Some test cases[1] for the XML
stylesheet PI with type='text/xsl' have been attached to the bug report[2].

In a sampling of the University of Amsterdam XML Web Collection, around 10% of
the documents[3] have an XML stylesheet PI with type='text/xsl'.

The XML Core WG remains concerned that the absence of a mention of support for
the XML stylesheet PI with type='text/xsl' would serve to discourage users from
taking advantage of the existing functionality and might set implementers on a
path towards deprecating the feature.

The XML Core WG feels strongly that some mention of support for the XML
stylesheet PI with type='text/xsl' or type='application/xslt+xml' needs to be
included in the initial HTML5 Recommendation.
