I don't see what this has to do with whether browsers are an open platform. Surely doing XML stuff isn't the definition of "open platform".

> To my way of thinking - and certainly this is not representative of everyone on this mailing list - I think the question that perhaps needs to be asked is this: What would it take to get the HTML5 working group to consider incorporating the core XML technologies at their current levels - XSLT2, XPath 2, XSD 1.1, possibly XQuery, as well as a bridge technology such as E4X, into the HTML5 specification? 

It's unlikely that those technologies would be incorporated in the HTML5 spec under any circumstances. The trend is splitting stuff out of HTML5 instead of adding unrelated stuff.
