Generally the rational for using templates to build a Web site is to
make it easy for some larger group (over space and/or time) than the
original developers to maintain the site.  XSLT would not be my first
choice for the development and maintenance of the higher level
abstractions that can be used to build a Web site. Rather, build a
vocabulary designed for those needs and keep the XSLT in the core
where it's not going to be exposed to random Web designers.
