The XSLT-like syntax is an intention; since everybody knows XSLT, people 
would be able to use the most of features in an intuitive way. However, 
there are some fundamental incompabilities with XSLT such as 
SAX-oriented axes.

I will try to create a bit more consistent definition of the streaming 
language soon I and would be very glad to discuss it with those who may 
be interested.
