This reponse contains your own personal inferences
and conclusions that have no direct bearing on what the
XSLT 1.1 WD says. My comments were that the mechanism
is designed to allow any language. Anyone reading
the spec can verify the two points that I made.

You have drawn the additional conclusion that since 
the XSLT 1.1 WD provides DOM2+IDL, DOM2+ECMAScript,
and DOM2+Java bindings as appendices, that somehow 
this requires implementors to support some/any/all
of these. That draft clearly states that a processor
is not required to do so.

I don't believe there's a need to start another round
of emails that underscore the fact that you *fear* one
might lead to the other. This point of view has been
stated, archived, and been reflected in your petition.
