I think I am being misrepresented rather seriously here.

I have said on several occasions that the reason those features are in 
XPath 2.0 is that some on the Working Groups believe that the XSLT / XPath 
communities want these features. I think that we have several prominent 
members of these communities on XML-Dev. I have been encouraging them to 
express their views as to what is needed, saying that I don't think we 
should add these features if the community does not want them.

I don't know, how many in the XPath community are there on XML-Dev? When I 
started the thread, "XPath 2.0 - how much of XQuery should it include?", I 
think that amounts to consulting them.
