           Summary: Serialization - Extensibility
           Product: XPath / XQuery / XSLT
           Version: Last Call drafts
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows XP
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Serialization
        AssignedTo: scott_boag@us.ibm.com

The XSLT 2.0 specification makes provision for implementations to define
additional serialization parameters whose effect is implementation-defined.
There seems to be no similar provision in the serialization specification itself.

Implementation-defined serialization parameters should be allowed to override
the standard serialization even where this is specified with MUST. For example,
it would be acceptable for an implementation-defined serialization parameter to
cause all whitespace text nodes in the output to be dropped.
