If by canonical you mean "supported by a standards body" then the closest thing to that is the W3C's XSL, which is still a Working Draft but is derived from stylesheet languages that are recommended. However, while I'd admit to being biased, I think the world of XML scripting is still sufficiently in flux that it's sensible to choose a language on merit rather than standards-body recommendation. Given the choice, I'd much rather program in XML Script or Perl (with XML parser) than XSL. > If > so, does it have a virtual machine and a bytecode set?
