The task of presenting XML documents can't easily be mapped to
traditional GUI programming IMO. The point I intended to make was that
XSLT could be seen as something that binds my data model (the source XML
document) to the view (presentation oriented software constructs such as
FO:s, HTML elements or anything else that has presentation semantics). 

I would not suggest using XML/FO/XSLT as M/V/C for an interactive
editing environment. For generating a _static_ view from the document
data I sure think that XSLT meets my current needs as the connecting
software layer.
