I'm happy with the wording in the 27 November draft on this issue.

I guess I can live with this as it stands in the 27 November draft.  I
will suggest some wording changes at the editorial level before we go
to PER.

Looks good in 27 November draft.

New (old) issue:  The description of where 'the processor' sits wrt
'the application' seems to have been lost at some point.  I thought
we had agreed that something along the lines of

   [XML] defines an *application* as a software module which receives
   the information content of an XML document from an *XML processor*.
   [Definition: A (conforming) *xml-stylesheet processor* is such an
   application which processes XML processing instructions [ref
   REC-xml/#sec-pi] whose [PITarget] is 'xml-stylesheet' in accordance
   with this specification.]

   An *xml-stylesheet processor* may be part of a larger XML
   application, or may function independently.  In either case,
   [Definition: an *application* is the consumer of the
   pseudo-attribute analysis defined in this specification.]

would be added.
