  Michael, could you please explain your reasoning for adopting this
  interpretation as against another possible interpretation, namely that
  each stylesheet should be applied as a separate, chained,

The xml-stylesheet spec says

Multiple xml-stylesheet processing instructions are also allowed with
exactly the same semantics as with LINK REL="stylesheet".  

and in the case of link (especially but not exclusively with css)
multiple links are all applied to teh _same_ document (the xsl analogue
being to import them all in to one big virtual stylesheet) unless they
have alternate="yes" which doesn't mean that they alternate but rather
that they are alternatives: the system should apply one or the other but
not both.
