Funny, I was just discussing why this might be with someone 
from work an hour ago. My perspective is not that valid, 
being an implementor more often than a user, but our 
conclusion was this is as much about practical issues than 
technical. The main problems being the relatively poor 
integration between the programming languages of choice and 
XQuery/XSLT and lack of interesting implementations in easy 
to use component form.

I am personally starting to think there is a very real hole 
between standard OM based XPath and the top end all singing 
and dancing XML processing solutions. One that perhaps a 
re-factored XPath 1.0 would fit in much better than 
anything else I can think of.
