Yes, if you want XSLT you MUST use XSLT is written.

What I meant was that it allows people to share documents with needing to 
agree on the same syntax. You can produce stuff in Docbook, and I can use it 
with tools for viewing HTML, and there's no problem because XSLT lets us 
bridge this gap.

Company A can use one set of GIs, and Company B can use a different set. 
They can differ on the old element-vs-attribute question, and whether all 
lowercase is better than CamelCase. Useful interchange of documents is only 
slightly impaired, as each can use XSLT to translate to the "local standard" 
representation.

XSLT enables everyone to use the syntax they like.
