I see XSLT as great for converting DocBook to FO or HTML, but it just doesn't
seem sensibly designed for the Web app / on the fly stuff. There's too much data
processing there. XSLT just doesn't do data processing, and if you're writing
code anyway to process data, you can write code to call up a template that some
web developer writes to plonk the results into with them only needing to learn
about five "special" elements they slip into their HTML...
