no one is contesting that there are people using xml-stylesheet with XSLT or
that it is important to users who rely on it. The heart of the matter is that
it is simply not feasible to define how it works at the requisite level of
concision within the very small time frame we have before entering CR. We are
fixing bugs, not taking new features.

Please note that as soon as 5.0 hits CR, we will be issuing a FPWD or 5.1 — I
must therefore emphasise that it is not as if all specification work was about
to stop until 2015.

I would be happy to work with the XML Core WG to properly specify this feature
as part of 5.1.

In the meantime, you seem to indicate that you might be satisfied with "some
mention of support". Can you clarify what that would involve? Do you have some
suggested text? Would a non-normative paragraph work for you?

If not then I'm afraid that the next step will have to be escalation.
