We think this issue has been overtaken by events. If you feel that we've
failed to address the issues, please consider raising the question again
on our next Last Call draft.

Thank you for taking the time to review our spec.

/ Michael Kay <mike@saxonica.com> was heard to say:
| Another thought on the topic of XSLT 1.0 vs XSLT 2.0.
| It seems to me that the same problem is going to affect every task that
| XProc can invoke: XSLT won't be the only thing to exist at more than one
| version. The solution adopted for XSLT, of having two different tasks xslt1
| and xslt2, doesn't really seem the right general solution. Wouldn't it be
| better to have an attribute such as specification-version="1.0|2.0"? It
| might also be appropriate to have attributes that allow the caller to
| indicate which implementations of the specification are preferred and/or
| acceptable as alternatives.
