To Virtual Team,

If we turn OSGi/Equinox into a pile of bloatware, we should all be ashamed.

To all, please keep a focus on the non-functional requirements that have
made OSGi a success.   small, limited pre-reqs, etc.   Think "cell phone"
as a base.

But I find the use of XSLT to be stomach turning. XSLT programming is not
easy. I support Peter's thoughts on having a programmatic way of
transforming metadata.

I think XSLT is *exactly* the kind of thing to use here. XPath is an incredibly flexible way of being able to filter and transpose XML documents, and is definitely the right choice.

A dumb programmatic API might be able to generate simple XPath
expressions for those that prefer writing in code, but don't turn a
great solution into a weak one just so that it can be written in a way
unsuited to the task.
