Although I haven't used XSLT 2.0/XPath 2.0 yet, I would greatly like to see 
Xalan supporting this. I have done numerous projects using XSLT and hit several 
times the limitations of 1.0 -- be it due to the very limited string 
functionality or to the inability to reprocess result tree fragments. This often 
resulted in highly inefficient, recursive and tricky code or even in splitting 
of the processing into multiple steps. Looking into the 2.0 specs, it seems that 
I could solve a lot of my previous problems in a quite comfortable way. Also, I 
think that Sun has to move to 2.0 for the JDK at some point in time, and it 
would be quite sad if they had to choose a different implementation.
