Certainly not. XSLT is very good for the kinds of transformations used 
when converting irregular document structures before formatting a 
document. Which is, of course, what it was designed for.

You can, in fact, write these transformations in XQuery, but not as easily.

FWIW, do you think we should deprecate every programming language whose 
functionality is equivalent to that of Java?
