A good point, but in the context of documentation generation the
author has control over the parser and processor, so this isn't
a problem. I don't think the idea is to give the stylesheet to
someone, and tell them to extract the documentation, apply this
other stylesheet. In the absence of widespread support for extension
elements and fallback elements, as David C has proposed, my solution
still seems quite attractive, albeit amoral.
