I do not see it as a limitation however, since any programming task
can be seen as a data transformation. It might be part of the
greatness of XSLT that it gives you a focused perspective on exactly
that, and provides the most relevant tools to solve this complex task
without all the bells and whistles coming along in other programming

Very nice post by the way :)
