Well, clearly, any solution that involves changing XSLT 1.0 is a non-starter.
Apart from anything else, most XSLT 1.0 processors are no longer actively

Well, I don't think there's anything to stop you defining a process called say
H5Transform which takes an XSLT stylesheet, processes the source document as
defined in the XSLT specification, and then does some further processing on the
result tree based on what you find in the xsl:output definition. That wouldn't
require any changes to XSLT, and you could do it without waiting for a new XSLT
release. You could even define it using XSLT 1.0 rather than 2.0 as the

I don't. XSLT is a pure XML-to-XML transformation language, there's no room for
special-casing it for particular XML vocabularies. We've even moved the
serialization stuff into a separate spec to keep it separate.
