OK, my mistake. I assumed you wanted a solution to your problem,
and since you said you wanted XSLT based flow (your long term agenda)
I assume that was what you wanted.

My point was that the proposals in general shouldn't be "I want *this* 
solution" but rather "I want a solution that can solve *this*".

I was trying to present your request in a different form - that the
important thing wasn't the adoption of a specific solution, but the
solution of a specific problem.
