And that's what I'm questioning.
And no, there is not a single person on this list who is representative of the "average folk", simply because we are all savvy and interested enough to be on this list.

By "like", read "use".
While I obviously don't have any actual statistics, I think it's safe to assume that an awful lot of people use CSS, while very few use XSLT, let along XSL:FO.
Yes, I am aware that CSS has been around for a while, and that XSLT and XSL:FO are very new.
However, I would argue that CSS wouldn't have become popular if it didn't do at least most of what people wanted.
So, getting this back to my original question:
"Who exactly is being kept happy by XSLT and XSL:FO?"
