Hi,

If you decide to go ahead with xsl:sort-key or something similar, do
you think it would be handy to allow those elements that can take
xsl:sort as children (i.e. xsl:for-each, xsl:apply-templates,
xsl:for-each-group) to be able to point to those named sort
specifications?

It would make them more reusable, and the transition between sorting
in XPath and sorting in XSLT more manageable (improving the
maintainability of the stylesheet).

Cheers,

Jeni
