Microsoft's InfoPath works this way, using XSLT to establish 2-way 
bindings between the source XML and the HTML editing view. So did Ephox 
EditLive! for XML (now defunct?). I haven't used Xopus, but I hear that 
it also uses XSLT in this same way.

There are some constraints on how you must write the XSLT to get the 
bindings to work (InfoPath also uses additional annotations on the 
XSLT), but nothing too onerous. I believe in all of the above cases only 
XSLT 1.0 is supported. XSLT 2.0 poses additional challenges, what with 
the ability to create temporary result trees and what not.
