I'm sure you're right. Patches welcome.

You are correct that there are unfinished XSLT 2 stylesheets. They
have the promise of being tremendously shorter but will require
hundreds of person hours to complete and won't be attractive as a
development target until DocBool 5.0 is formalized. I'd be delighted
to see active development on them restart under a motivated developer,
but I'm not holding my breath.
