The point here isn't that transformations shouldn't have happened - it's
that you could at least use the same formatting vocabulary for CSS and for
XSL FO's.  

XSL-T raises its own issues, but making it coexist with CSS isn't very
difficult.  I don't think there would have been a debate at all, actually,
or at least much less of a debate.
