No: the part of the transformation language specification that deals with
turning the result grove into an SGML document and validating it are SGML
specific.  However, it wouldn't be hard to extend the transformation
language to work with arbitrary groves. It also wouldn't be hard to extend
Jade's style language extensions to work with arbitrary groves.
