Re comment#1:

Isn't that essentially covered by "required-properties" using
"xsl:is-schema-aware"? Setting that to "false" for a schema-aware processor can
invoke that processor with schema-validation and type checking turned off.

That's similar in how I envision xsl:supports-streaming is going to work. One
processor may support streaming and non-streaming, and this can then be invoked
by setting this property to true or false respectively.

Makes sense. Let's leave it to that.

This (your proposal) effectively creates the ability for users to test their
stylesheets against a variety of configurations, which in turn may open the
door for some serious XSLT Unit testing frameworks to emerge (here's hoping ;).

But I digress, I like the proposal.

One note: apart from xsl:version, which has no place here, I think
xsl:vendor-url and xsl:vendor, have no lookup semantics. But we can also leave
that to be defined by the implementers (which is the status-quo).

I think that the boolean values should be treated as xs:boolean, not as string
"yes" or "no", or "true" or "false".
