Web pages I create from TEI XML _always_ have some element of
transformation. e.g. I take material from <revisionDesc> and put it at
the end saying "last revised on such-and-such a date". Or I make a TOC.
Or I put in standard links to home page. Or I make breadcrumb trails,
etc etc. Or I split the sections in several pages. Or I put <note>s at
the end. etc etc.
Therefore I would argue that the untouched TEI XML file
never represents exactly what I want to show on the web.
