Yes, a couple of minor changes:

First a literal result element that is used as the root element of a 
stylesheet must have an xsl:version attribute. This should help to 
avoid some common and confusing problems where xsl:stylesheet 
elements with the wrong namespace are unintentionally interpreted as 
literal result elements. See 
http://www.w3.org/TR/xslt#result-element-stylesheet

Second, the data-type attribute of xsl:sort can use a prefixed name 
to specify a data type not defined by XSLT. According to a note, "The 
XSL Working Group plans that future versions of XSLT will leverage 
XML Schemas to define further values for this attribute." See 
http://www.w3.org/TR/xslt#sorting
