Robin aftrwards explained to me that the HTML WG has a policy of making
decisions only on their mailing list, not at meetings.

+1, I'm uneasy but can live with what's there for now - XSLT is in any
case not going away because of commitment to existing content.

Agree more precise spec very important long term. We (Core + XSL +
HTML?) should standardise e.g. calling XSLT on a DOM fragment and
passing parameters from JavaScript in an HTML document. (can't run
JavaScript in an XML document as there's no xml:script of course)
