> Interesting. Actually, I'd consider the "generate sources from domain profile"
pattern (if I give that name to the situation I described) somewhat different
than the document generation case, which I'd consider more.... normal (for lack
of a better word). But perhaps the field is converging to the extent that one
can no longer draw an absolute distinction?

Converging on an emanent truth of markup: that any character-based data
representation may profitably be considered a document.  A source-code file is
merely a document with particularly rigorous, repetitive and error-prone
syntactic and grammatical requirements.  The application of XSLT to code
generation is perfectly analagous to its application over *documents*.  Let
markup manage the semantic domain and allow stylesheets to manage syntactic,
grammatical or formatting details.
