Indeed they do - see [1] which summarises the recent discussions on 
this topic (both here on XML-DEV and XSL-List) and [2] which 
reports on a statement made by Steve Muench on behalf of 
the XSL WG. 

The WG are looking at unifying this kind of support in a future 
version of the specification.

I believe some discussion has already taken place between the 
developers of XT, Xalan, and SAXON. There's some discussion 
taken place on the Apache Xalan list of something called 
(at different times, SAT and TRAX).
