--- Comment #3 from Michael Kay <mike@saxonica.com> ---
The XSL WG agreed that we do not want to enhance the capability of character
maps. There were designed as a way of working around limitations in the
serializer such as the ability to generate DOCTYPE declarations, or for
generating output in "not-quite-standard" formats such as PHP code; they meet
this need; and we do not want to encourage people to use them as a general
purpose string transformation language in its own right.

We are therefore respectfully declining this suggested enhancement.

XSL WG here is acting for the XQuery WG as well.
