For me, the biggest arguments against DSSSL are the obscure documents
describing it. Take
<http://occam.sjf.novell.com:8080/docs/dsssl-o/do951212.htm>, for
example. And don't give it back.

Seriously, the best arguments I've seen for DSSSL are your examples. If
you're really trying to drum up support, you might want to supplement
with some less intimidating reference material than above, such as the
gentle "Introduction..." at
<http://itrc.uwaterloo.ca/~papresco/dsssl/tutorial.html>. Or am I the
only one on this list not already familiar with DSSSL?

BTW, why no 'rotation-axis' and 'rotation-angle' classes?
