One more datum, that I just discovered, Apple has implemented XPath
2.0, XSLT 2.0, and XQuery:


(oh, the use of the fragment identifier for content location is just horrific!)

Thus, on some platforms (Mac OS X, iOS 4.x), you get XSLT 2.0 support
for free.

Seems like the ability to use an OS's native support would be ideal as
long as the same specification version support is available through
some means on each port.
