Do you mean its more resiliant in that a default template will be invoked for any schema change?

For schema that are being modified is it not better to have a stylesheet that doesn't render any schema changes without explicitly adding it to the XSLT?

It's more resilient to unexpected input, e.g. as a result of schema changes.
