New XPath extension function called xslt()

Hi all,

I have made some extension for XSLTForms (see 
http://extxsltforms.sourceforge.net here ).

Among these extensions, I've an xslt action, which performs a xsl
transformation of a nodeset (part of a data instance), by using an external
XSL stylesheet, and inserts the resulting nodeset in a data instance (see 
here ).

After analyzing this xslt action, the Forms WG concluded that an XPath
extension function called xslt() would be more appropriated (see 
http://www.w3.org/2010/03/25-forms-minutes.html here ).

So, Leigh Klotz suggested the following syntax example:
<submission method="post" ref="ex:xslt(.....)" resource="save.cgi" />
where @ref should be considered by xslt() as xml doc to be transformed.

Such usage is very nice and appropriate, as allows user to make some client
XSL transformations before sending data to server.

I but I think that I would be more than useful if such XSL transformations
can be made also during filling the form by user.

In this regard, I would like to ask the community for ideas regarding the
syntax and usage of xslt().

Thank you,
Claudius Teodorescu
