The list is on http://wiki.apache.org/xmlgraphics-fop/ReleasePlanning
(scroll down to "To be done before a 1.0 release"). That's what was
created after I wanted to do a 1.0 release in June 2006. And now I'm
forcing everyone to revisit it.

If it were that simple, we'd already have 100% coverage of the XSL 1.0
spec. Resources, complexity, Real-Life.... If FOP got more volunteers,
maybe....
