Re: [xml-dev] RFC for XML Object Parsing - New Thought

Both examples show PI's at a global scope(selecting the XSL that will be applied to the whole XML document.)  In both examples PI's are 'global', in that they apply to the whole XML document.  Can PI's be scoped inside an element?  Is there anyone listening @[xml-dev] that can provide a quick answer with certainty? 

Yes and yes.

I came to [xml-dev] specifically for comments like this one that force me to think of other possibilities.  Does [xml-dev] go offline frequently?  What causes 5 days down?  

Not often but occasionally. Running mailing lists is not the primary business of the people who do it, they do it for free, and there's no service contract, so you get what you pay for.
As len said, after a decade a silence, not much in terms of new ideas are really exchanged on this thread anymore since XML is seen to be "fully baked". 

You're not going to win friends with insulting remarks like that. Many new ideas have been aired on this list, and if you think yours is the first or the best, then you need to get a sense of perspective. If XML hasn't changed much in 16 years that's not because it can't be improved and it's not for want of ideas, it's because the costs of change usually exceed the benefits - you'll find lots of discussion on that theme if you search the archives.
