I think of it as enlightened self-interest:  the realization 
of the importance to one's own interests of cooperation, 
patience, and a long range set of goals.  Yet, the zeitgeist 
is there and patience is sometimes more important than any 
other virtue.  The time context is key.  Real demand has to 
exist so that lots of individuals become willing and realize the 
same things at about the same time.  XML gives a way to cooperate 
and validate the behavior of cooperation.  That is what I mean 
by "shapes the behavior".  The rewards are immediate and tangible 
and so are the negative reinforcements yet the means or way are 
actually easy to learn and comprehend.  So in the Tit for Tat 
scenario, it meets the requirements of clarity, provocability 
and restraint.

Tell us what you think should be emphasized about XSL in a few paragraphs. 
Threads on this list have often been the inspiration or source

have a inspiration, share it by all means.

I really think that excellent, unselfish engeneering is a major key behind
a successful, long living standard. A standard must dominate by
excellence and not manage by fear.

PS! Another news of the week is that I read in the XSL FAQ (about
variables) that XSL is a functional based language. Major break-through
when I realized I got the chanse to use my first 4p from university :)
The difference between imperative and functional aproach towards XSLT is
around 2 pages. It should be emphasized when someone asks.
