(dsssl) Practical Bibliography question

The project to format my dissertation using DSSSL and OpenJade is coming 
along adequately.

However it will hit a snag when I get to the bibliography.

It is in an "uncooked" list of <TEI:biblStruct>s

These bear very little resemblence to the form dictated by the style of the 
American Anthropology Association.

The AAA format depends on several factors.

The most salient is that if there are two works in your reference section by 
the same group of authors published in the same year then the date should be 
decorated with a lower-case letter.
     This means that you need to compare the date and author list of the 
current biblStruct to those in its predicessor, and if they match then your 
increment a counter.  Decorate the publication year according to this pattern:

Counter | suffix
0          |    nil
1          |    'a'
2          |    'b'
etc.            etc.


Is it reasonable to use this general recipie to too "cook" a bibliography?

Get list of works cited in the main text using Perl or XSL tool.
Edit master bibliography by hand to get list of references actually used

Transform raw Raw-References to Pre-Cooked References of form TEI:bibl using 
XSL tool.

Transform Pre-Cooked list of <TEI:bibl>s using OpenJade+JadeTeX


What XSL tool (if any) would you recommend?
