I’d say you’d want to consider what is being planned
for the xf:transform action in XForms. Currently, XForms has all the pieces
necessary to do this bar the invoking of the transform, but that is already
available as an extension in some implementations. With XForms it doesn’t
all come out of a single element, you need to define an instance for the data
and some events that trigger actions and something with which to bind the
result to the view. But then that’s probably why it is difficult to
parameterize all in one element.

Personally, I'd like to see an inline <transform> tag
This would be a display tag that would load the data either
from a server or from a block of XML in the client, then would apply they
associated stylesheet to that data in order to provide output that would
replace the current child content.
I've been thinking about doing something like this as an alternative to having
it's hard to parameterize it, that is, to make anything dependent on data
content or user input.
