Talking about those slides, I have a (possibly naive) question. I've read
several times that XSLT is good only for transformations from more to less
structured. I might be missing something, but given that it is meant to
transform a tree is it possible that it be otherwise ? In other words, this
doesn't appear to be a valid _criticism_ of XSLT as it isn't meant to be
able to do more than at best reproduce the complexity of the source tree.

So, to rephrase, is this meant as a criticism -- in which case I have
missed something -- or is it a simple statement intended toward people who
hadn't noticed ?
