With XSLT external functions, why do we need JSP ?

Just started looking at XSLT external functions.
It could call any external Java/or any other supported programming language class methods and generate the XML/html etc. as the output.
Started to wonder would it eventually phase out JSPs ?

Unless you have a version of XSLT that creates a compiled program, JSP should be significantly faster. Also the "bean" handling options for scope = page, request, session and application would be hard to duplicate in XSLT.
