I think you shouldn't exclude this option.

Even is CSS is not XML, it would be quite easy to write a CSS SAX parser
reading CSS files and sending SAX events which could be used in a XSLT

I have recently done a similar parser reading csv files and sending SAX
events (see http://4xt.org/news/000524-0001.xml) and if you want to go
in this direction, I would be happy to write one for CSS.

I was also considering the reverse (a FO processor generating XHTML +

Hope this helps.
