W3C standards may be interdependent, but they are not a package deal -- for example, I can use XML with a format other than RDF for exchanging metadata (and in the future, RDF may use serialization formats other than XML). I can use Perl, Java, Python, DSSSL, or or what-have-you to transform or render XML documents without becoming in any way non-conformant. I can look at XML documents through any API (though SAX and the DOM are good for general-purpose work), and I can set up linking any way I want. I don't think that it was ever the W3C's intention to say that XSLT is the only way that people should transform XML documents; if so, I strongly object.
