Warning: I'm stating my own opinion here, nothing official or something like that.

There are at least three problems with XSP:
1. No active committer is interested in XSP anymore, and even more, hardly anyone wants to
her time in technology that seems to be deprecated in every dev's head but still block is
officially marked as deprecated.
2. The only reason why people keep trying to use XSP is that it has decent documentation on
our site 
and this documentation has no information about XSP status. We should really explain people
Templates + Flowscript is much better approach.
3. XSP is really old technique and is not maintained by anyone (again officially, at dev/commits

list). I'm not the one willing to take costs of XSP maintenance in C2.2 therefore I'll probably
-1 for any actions leading to release of XSP block for C2.2. This is my first such a strong
voice in 
this case but I firmly believe it's a high time have a concrete opinion.

Still, I'm open for discussion of course.
