It's been worked on from time to time since, and many groups (including
Math) have worked on their own copies (ours are all xslt 2 for example)
but the basic design goes back to just implementing the minimum required
to typeset the xml spec using those parts of a pre-xslt 1 draft of xslt
that were implemented in some beta release of xt, so I don't think
extensive coverage for possible future requirements was highest
priority of the original designers:-)
