1.5 Should Maintain Backwards Compatibility with XPath 1.0 
I believe this has already been addressed by the version declaration in the
stylesheet, why is backwards compatibility being doubly addressed?

4 Must Add Support for XML Schema Primitive Datatypes 
XML Schema: Datatypes defines a set of primitive datatypes. In addition to
the types supported by the XPath 1.0 data model, string, number, boolean,
and node-set, the XPath 2.0 data model MUST support XML Schema primitive
types. XPath 2.0 will extend the XPath data model to accommodate working
with elements and attribute values having an XML Schema primitive type.

I don't believe this is a user requirement. If its justifiable please
the source of the requirement. 

Similarly for the whole of section 5. I neither support this nor have I
heard a single
request for this on the XSLT list. I support Jelliffes concerns expressed on
