Replace "ageing" with "well-established", "tried and true",
"proven", and I struggle to see your point.

XSL-FO is by definition better because it's newer?


I presume that during the development process for
XSL-FO, a comprehensive review was made of current
tools and technologies.

This would have generated a list of functionality.

The working group would then have gone through and
ticked or crossed which functions they were going
to match.

If this process was followed (surely it was),
can we have the list? This would provide us with
the best comparison of XSL-FO and other systems.

Or am I being naieve in thinking that such
a process was followed?
