Is there a desire to have agreement for (1) the "type" value of
xml-stylesheet PI and (2) the transfer protocol content type for the
style object?  Are there extant values of "type" for the
xml-stylesheet PI other than "text/css" and "text/xsl"?  Might not W3
imagine new values, perhaps, "text/css-ng", coming along later?
