FWIW, I don't think that's a fair statement. XPath 2.0, XQuery 1.0,
and XSLT 2.0 are very close languages. An XSLT transformation is
conceptually a function, taking one or more inputs and returning one
or more inputs.

(Mike Kay wrote an article called "Comparing XSLT and XQuery" which
now seems to have disappeared from the interwebs.)
