Great example. Most web based applications I build may depend on XSLT
for data transformation, but there is no alternative to CSS when it
comes on using these (aka UI).

There are even more fundamental parts missing IMHO, take the selectors
for example. You can't even do
foo1 > foo2
It makes no sense to me actually. MS has a full XPath implementation in
it's parsers, but they have crippled their CSS support thanks to poor
selector syntax support. Go figure.
