If by "actual plan" you mean "charter", then no, there are no actual plans.

It's too early to say whether that situation will change. I think there will be a lot of discussion about it over the next few months. The conversation has started, and there is certainly some sentiment that it's time to "declare victory". On the XSLT side there's certainly a risk that that continuing to develop the language, leaving an increasing number of implementations behind on earlier versions, is not in the best interests of interoperability. However, there may well be scope for adding new function libraries without changing any language features.
