I would be inclined to write a custom serializer for this. Many
processors give you access to the result tree in the form of a SAX event
stream, which you can capture in a user-written SAX2 ContentHandler. 

This allows your XSLT stylesheet to concentrate on generating the ASN.1
representation as a tree, and the serializer to contain all the
knowledge about the BER encoding of ASN.1

An alternative is that there is, I believe, an XML encoding of ASN.1,
and therefore presumably a converter from that to BER.
