We point out that in inclusive B-->Xs[script-l]+[script-l]- decay an angular decomposition provides a third (q2 dependent) observable sensitive to a different combination of Wilson coefficients than the rate and the forward-backward asymmetry. Since a precise measurement of q2 dependence requires large data sets, it is important to consider the data integrated over regions of q2. We develop a strategy to extract all measurable Wilson coefficients in B-->Xs[script-l]+[script-l]- from a few simple integrated rates in the low q2 region. A similar decomposition in B-->K*[script-l]+[script-l]-, together with the B-->K*gamma rate, also provides a determination of the Wilson coefficients, without reliance on form factor models and without having to measure the zero of the forward-backward asymmetry.
