That is a good point, except do you think Microsoft will implement XBL?
Actually it might serve them well to have W3C layers merged and made less
orthogonal.

XSLT is browser independent (orthogonal layer which doesn't even need a
browser).  XBL is Mozilla specific, requires a browser, and so far afaics
no one has shown it is not W3C redundant.
