I agree with these points, but I'd like to add some more questions:

3. Does the XSLT implementation have a fully working node-set extension 
(AFAIK right now, only IE does).

4. Are there any plans to upgrade the browser engine to XSLT 2.0 (AFAIK, 
  nobody is planning that, and I'd really like to understand why).

Best regards, Julian
