Hi, all,

First of all, thank you for paying attention to this proposal and for sharing your opinions about it. All these opinions are very instructive and reveal different facets of the discussed topic both from conceptual point of view and from practical usage in real-world web applications.

2. Considering xslt as an action, one can avoid all the "problems" caused by its "dependencies" (as were mentioned above) and the usage of
