Maybe you can still fix it with XSLT 3. Define an official namespace for
the extensions over XSLT 1.0 and thus make it easier to implement a
well-defined subset of new additions to the standards in an arbitrary XSLT
x.y processor, but without requiring XML Schema. Some of the new XPath
functions are pretty helpful, for example, and many of them are independent
of any static typing.
