Some time ago I started writing a stylesheet  that will transform an XHTML document to XSL-FO for the HTML working group. It is largely incomplete but could serve as a basis for your work.
It supports the default rendering of XHTML, as defined by Steven Pemberton's CSS stylesheet for XHTML, but does not do CSS at all.
I thought of writing a stylesheet that will convert an XSLT stylesheet that produces an XHTML document to an XSLT stylesheet that produces FO (i.e. an XSL stylesheet) but I found it hard or not really possible to do. I don't remember why.
Let me know if this helps. And I'm interested to know if you correct it or make it better.
