Someone previously in the thread asked that 'relationship to Mozilla
XUL' be articulated. And since it just so happens that W3C has gone
standards-track with a chunk of technology broadly equivalent to XUL
Templates, I thought this might be considered relevant. BTW there is also work
around that shows the results of DAWG RDF queries being consumed with
XSLT (http://www.asemantics.com/rdflets/ and nearby) which perhaps addresses
some concerns I've heard about XUL Templates duplicating XSLT

So really I just popped up to mention this 'cos "relationship to Mozilla
XUL" appeared to be on-topic. I'm sure you'll let me know if it isn't.
