XSLT 2.0 in System.XML V2.0 ?
However ultimately we made the decision that the non-XML syntax (or you could say more SQL like syntax) of XQuery was going to attract more developers in the long run, in the same way the developers on the whole find XPath an easier file-path like syntax to write.

And thus no, Microsoft isn't implementing XSLT 2.0 for the .Net framework, since XSLT 2.0, XQuery 1.0 and XPath 2.0 are just the same query language dressed up in different forms.

More discussion here.

Well, if they really are so similar, how hard could it be to support them? The logic sounds specious to me. Although there's overlap betwixt the different standards, they are really geared to solving different kinds of problems. Isn't XPath supposed to be embedded within both XSLT and XQuery. And what of the document standards of XSL:FO?

Sure does.

On the other hand, if this was really meant to help Xen, wouldn't they implement XSLT 2.0 (the declerative language) rather than XQuery?
