It has come to my attention (see xslt list for details) that not only are the DocBook stylesheets still XSLT 1, but that, when being processed using Saxon, they use certain features that are specific to Saxon 6, and are not available in Saxon 9.  Specifically html/chunker.xsl uses saxon:output rather than result-document.
May I request that this be addressed as soon as possible, especially since there is currently progress toward 1.78.1.
Even without a full move of docbook from Xsl 1 to 2 I would appreciate being able to use one version of Saxon for all my xslt needs.
Michael Kay indicates that it may be achievable just by replacing saxon:output by result-document.  Though there are a couple of bits of fixing-up that may need doing - there are calls to element-available('saxon:output') and the saxon:output call has a parameter/attribute saxon:character-representation which doesn't appear to relate to any of result-document's parameters.
