XEditor has been an influence in what we've been discussing on the
TransQuery list w.r.t XSLT as an XML update language. The key distinction
between the two approaches is that XEditor hides complexity of XSLT
implementation via preprocessing a la Schematron, while TransQuery update
hides complexity of XSLT implementation via xsl:import (thereby
transparently using pure XSLT 1.0).
