  First I didn't say that was THE answer.  But that's a way
of developing with XSLT that one doesn't have usualy when
coming from imperative languages, and that helps to fight

  Of course the point is not to not control what the
stylesheet does, but to define what it does in places that
ease maintainability.

  If the default template rules don't do what you want,
don't use them.

  I must confess I don't understand this paragraph.
