Ugh :-/

Why can't it be freeform now? We use xpath in the aggregated doc.

Hmmm... nice thoughts...


1 - to get the skinconf values from the *skins* we aggregate
2 - to get the skinconf values from svg we have come to the conclusion 
that the best way is to use an extra namespace and inject the values

You are basically saying: why not simply use case 2 for all and even 
make that into a special transformer?

The problem is that these values are to be given the xsl, not the 
document itself, so to make this equipollent we should make an xsl 
extension, not an xml extension (namespaces).

I guess that the best bet is to keep on using namespaced values for the 
documents and aggregation for the skins.
