RE: build your own transform (RE: infinite depth to namespaces)

For HLALs, it's vital.  I would think that 
transforms to different target languages would 
be non-controversial.  Downtranslation is the 
key to enabling authors to work in different 
levels of abstraction, or am I missing your 
point here?

That's on my to-do list as well, promise! (Same for attributes.)

It's pretty easy to modify the namespace filter rules to change element
names in-addition-to/in-place-of modifying the namespace.  It's
occasionally useful for transforms between similar vocabularies, like a
single abstract vocabulary expressed in different natural languages.

As always, at your own risk...
