The XSL WG is doing a terrific job of developing an excellent standard in a
difficult problem domain. There is ample room in this world for ideas,
languages and implementations. The concept that development of one idea
stiffles development of competetive ideas is at best amusing. The world has
too few ideas and too few languages for expressing these ideas not to many.

In a good competitive environment, you pick the features your product will
support. The 'marketplace' will either accept or reject your product based
upon these features.

I have a right to use and develop systems using XSL. You are arguing against
my freedom to develop systems using the standard of my choice.
