Hi John,

I think this is a concern for client-side implementations of XForms 
because I can see that XSLT is very useful for transforming instances or 
document fragments.

I have defined a transform() function in XSLTForms and I use it a lot 
because it is very powerful, for example, for generating an Excel sheet.

XSLTForms, itself, requires XSLT for transforming an XForms page into an 
HTML+Javascript page. This can currently be performed at server-side or 
at client-side.

It is already in XSLTForms roadmap to have its own XSLT 1.0 engine, with 
some extensions, written in Javascript.
