FOP is an implementation of a W3C Recommendation (XSL) so it is as
standard as any other W3C Rec (including XSLT and XML).

There are other implementations of XSL (renderx, xep, passivetex, ...)
So your current stylesheet generating FO should work with any of those.

also there are many ways of getting from XML without using XSL (or XSLT
for that matter) xmltex, dsssl, 3b2, arbortext, ...
