I personally thing that XSLT is important for a mozilla1.0 release.
It is one of the "promises" to the developers that mozilla will be more than a browser, it'll be a platform for web-applications.
Mozilla.org made a lot of effort to create a architecture for web apps, but it must be visible for the web apps developer. This developer don't need XUL, which is only supported by one browser, they wanna have standard XML-XSLT-XPath....Xxxx
We all can see the hype about XML everywhere, and as a XML-developer i can say that there is no serious XML without XSLT.
XML will take over the company intranets first, where there are standard software installations on every workstations. if ie6 will have XSLT (and it will) mozilla will have it hard in this segment.
The Point about SVG is not yet a w3c standard is good, but as we follow w3c we can see that things there are often pre-final-public-drafts rather then standards ...for years
Jabberzilla, needs work, and if there will be a mozilla 1.1 release one or two month after 1.0 (release fast, release often) it would be a nice new feature. Oh look it has a IM client now.
And we want people to switch to mozilla 1.1 very fast, because with the many 100 bugs fixed there, it's getting more and more stable, and getting more and more good reputation.
