Could there be an element matching the DSSSL data() function so that only
the text content is available?  In the following *fictitious* fragment, one
might specify <xsl:data-children/> instead of <xsl:process-children/>

      <fo:queue queue-name='header'>
          <xsl:for-each select="../title">
              <xsl:data-children/> <!-- unformatted document title -->
          </xsl:for-each>
      </fo:queue>

The above would be necessary if <title> allowed rich mixed content.

......... Ken
