Possibly. But some of this is hard. XSLT tends to construct things top 
down, and XQuery constructs things bottom up, for reasons that make perfect 
sense in each language, which means the element constructors are different. 
Updates don't work well in XSLT since it clearly separates the input tree 
from the output tree.

Still, I like the general direction of what you suggest.
