Steve, you failed to address any of the points I made below.
a) The functionality is the primary object, and it
identified by an opaque, language independent URI
that is unique in the current context.
b) That the implementations and/or instructions for
binding to an implementation need not be in
the stylesheet itself, perferably it is a
seperate xml structure independent of XSLT and
re-useable by other specifications.
c) The the method for obtaining an implementation of
this functionality not be singluar, that is, only
provided via xsl:script. Perhaps even allowing for
functions to be used with only a namespace binding;
assuming that an implementation is either built-in,
in a local catalogue, or perhaps downloadable via RDDL.
d) That the identifying URI also be coupled with a
IDL like description of the module.
e) Perhaps even the identifying URI is required to be a
a globally unique URL that can be used to fetch via RDDL
a catalogue of implementations, etc. But this may
be too restrictive.
