What about making it explicit?

Seriously, this seems to be what most are asking for. This would 
be useful for the same reason shaving XPath and XSLT from the 
XSL spec was useful.

If the spec is already well factored, then this shouldn't involve 
more than pulling out the relevant piece(s) into separate 
specifications. And if it isn't that easy then maybe there's too 
many 'implicit' details. So it would be a useful exercise in 
any case.
