  Would you implement it ? Me, the answer is no. I don't need it, my
employeer has no interest in it, it's foundations are shaky (XSD),
it's unclear how much of 1.0 can be reused, and it's way too big for
my taste. However it's an open source project, if people want to 
implement it I'm not against.

  I'm not happy to violate the spec conciously.

  I'm gonna be frank. XSLT-1.0 does not fit your need. You want to sort
node set and do maths with it ? Use XPath from a high level *programming
language* instead of trying to divert somthing XSLT was not designed for !
  Use the right tool for the job !
