My point is: if you need it, great, use it. But if you don't, why should 
you impose your syntax upon us?

What I would like is simply a non-xml syntax for XSLT. RDF is going to 
have it (another interesting concept totally ruined by the 
un-friendlyness of their syntax). RelaxNG is going to have it (thank 
&deity; it's better than DTD's syntax!).

Why shouldn't XSLT?
