Re: [xsl] What's the best feature in XSLT 3?

Interestingly, we introduced xsl:mode/@on-no-match because the conventional 
forms of identity template weren't streamable. As the streamability analysis 
improved, this justification largely disappeared [*], but by then we had become 
accustomed to the convenience of this short-cut.

[*] The union operator select="node() | @*" still has streaming problems -- see 
the note in But you can write it as

<xsl:apply-templates select="@*"/>
<xsl:apply-templates select="node()"/>

to get round this.

It reduces significantly the quantity of stupid code we had in XSLT 2.

introduced in XSLT 3. I know i do.

What do you find most useful? Or like the best?
