Subtask of: U4-5419

v8 will no longer support XSLT, we will remove all classes, namespaces and code for XSLT.

That's not a great idea! Some of us love XSLT and that why we used umbraco in the first place!

It's a definite decision and not one we'll change. XSLT has lost its purpose for what we're doing with v8 and it'll never be a nice nor well-performing option.

However, it'll be possible for the community to use v7 which will still be supported as well as to build a provider for XSLT support in v8 if you don't want to use the new features to come such as multi-lingual, variants, etc.
