It's not something that can exactly be known; but my experience is that while it may not be true *in general* (the supposed correspondence between procedural programming habits and troubled XSLT), it's not altogether infrequent either.
So it remains a matter for speculation. Interesting how some "non-programmers", however, take to XSLT quickly and readily. (Albeit this also very much depends on the kind of XSLT being called for.)
