  Well, being an XPath/XSLT 1.0 implementor, I must say I didn't
even got the time to just read XPath/XSLT 2.0 and XQuery 1.0 drafts
so far. And Jeni is right about XML Schema, I started reading it seriously
after it reached REC. Maybe I am the one to blame, maybe it's just
that the volume of those specifications are slowly preventing single
individual from providing implementations (unless they are just paid
full time to track them, and even in that case they would be quite busy
I guess).
  I have no solution, I would prefer going slower, and simpler, but
this may not be acceptable for everybody.
