It seems that voyager (the next XML compatible HTML profile) establish some
groundwork for diverse document profiles and then use these profile
compliant documents as basic rendering instructions (sort of). For instance,
having VRML normalized as XML and its structure documented by a profile.
Same thing for MathML. Both could become well formalized rendering languages
(and XML compliant languages too). To reduce the communication overhead for
devices like phones would require that all transformations from a XML
document to a rendering format has to be done on the server. The rendering
format has to respect a certain profile (HTML, VRML, MATHML). Because the
resultant document is a XML document, then XSL could be used to do XML to
XML transformation mainly server side as the example in voyager's document

For further references the link is:

What is particularly interesting with the voyager effort is that the HTML
profile is now being compartmentalized with modules like you would get with
programming modules. This last feature announce an extensibility mechanism
for rendering languages.

Good stuff :-)
