I think I convinced Alex not for V1 :-)

/ Alex Milowski <alex@milowski.org> was heard to say:
| I'm motivated to try to satisfy part of comment #26 in that we could
| easily support non-XML output methods (e.g. 'text' and 'html') by saying
| that these are wrapped in a c:result element.
|
| This would require some knowledge of the output method.  Certain APIs
| for XSLT do not provide that information easily as the result of the
| transformation
| is streamed to the receiving object.  As a result, this could be difficult to
| implement this.
|
| ...but supporting text or html might be really nice.  For example, a simple
| pipeline could transform a document into *HTML* using html serialization
| and then use the http-request step to send it to a web service (e.g. a
| PUT request to store it).

                                        Be seeing you,
                                          norm
