I think that the non-inclusion of your additions is more an
unfortunate by-product of XSLT conformance not being billable work for
me.  As I remember the meeting and as I read the minutes, I'm supposed
to add your stuff to what I posted, but I haven't got to it yet.

Actually, since I'm stuck in a hotel room in scenic Lowell, MA, this
week, it's one of the things that I was going to do in my spare time
at night.

See my separate message about CVS, but for now I think that sending
comments to the mailing list, which is archive where anyone can read
it, is the best that we can do for now.
