Me too. Here is a project idea:

For years I have been using a stylesheet customization layer adding
support for changebars (based on revisionflag). In its current form that
simply adds visual markup to highlight the changed content.
However, in my typical workflow I need to maintain versions of the
document (OMG / ISO specifications) with and without changebars, which
right now requires editing the document.
What I'd like to suggest is a way to add an XSL parameter based on which
the generated document is either

* the original unchanged document
* the changed document with highlighted changes
* the changed document without highlighted changes.

This is slightly non-trivial as the required XSL adjustments even touch
indexing and TOC generation (since some content may be filtered out if
is new or no longer there in a given version).

In other words, I would like to produce "old" and "new" versions of my
docs purely based on the "revisionflag" markup and an XSL parameter,
rather than having to modify the sources.

(I'll put the above on the wiki, but wanted to post it to the list, too,
to inspire other people to post their own ideas. :-) )
