I've been investigating a bit and it seems 
like there are some people actively working on it. Only Sun-people 
however, and I recently organized an XSLT seminar with Michael Kay who 
was quite 'amused' w.r.t. XSLTC compliance & partial performance 
optimalization of XSLTC. But he's obviously biased :-)

Would that be itches or just pet peeves? ;-)

Fair enough. We'll be a prime beta test site for both Avalon and XSLTC. 
I believe we should definitely start warning people upfront that they 
really should stick to release versions, instead of relying on CVS 
checkouts of HEAD/2.1-dev - for some reason, there's quite some people 
using CVS instead of our release version. But that's another rant.

Thanks for your analysis, BTW!
