let me just re-send the quote of myself once again, because 
it appears to me that it has been ignored. As I already said:

That means I obviosly understand that there is some 
( hypotetical, again ) advantage of using the 'standard'  
binding on the client side.

However :

1. XSLT supported  in current web browsers is not 
XSLT at all ( anyone who reads the XSL-list should 
be aware of the real shape of MSXSL ).

2. Giving the browser a favicon.ico-alike behavior 
( I mean when the browser  encounters some.xml
it could by default try to get some.xsl from the 
same base url ) will work pretty well for the most 
usecases, I think. Yeah, this will not be 'standart'.

Of course not.  At the end og the year we'l see, whos
prediction is more accurate. 

( Are you predicting  that MS will sacrifice their 
to become 'conformant' ?  Strong assumption, 
I think, and I think it will be not good for the community 
if they'l do that ).
