I probably shouldnt have thrown that in, its never been a 'strict goal' 
of mine, more a "Nice to have".
If I could show a code sample in either XSLT or XQuery or both which 
happens to be a 'Reference Implementation' and documentation all in one, 
I think that would be very useful, and promote wider use because people 
could just "plug in" the reference implementation to any engine they 
already have and voila!

But your last set of comments makes be belive such a goal is not easily 
Your comments on an XSLT Subset come pretty close though.
