I dont see your reasoning here, can you please explain?

But that's what many Mozilla users actually appreciate; the ability to 
easily extend the browser for their needs, hence the mozile and xopus 
contentEditable "addons". There is no need for Mozilla to support 
anything like that if your application easily adds that on runtime.

AFAIK the XSLTProcessor[1] class does exactly that. The importStylesheet 
method imports and "compiles" an XSLT file that can be reused with the 
transformToXXXX methods.

True, RNG support would be a great alternative.

Lately I've been playing with Kupu (former name: Epoz), see [2].
