I believe XSLT 2 can allow creation of multiple documents based on one
input document? I think it would be great if any CSS stylesheets could
be generated dynamically, in order to take advantage of browser caching
of stylesheets (and separation of concerns in the generated output as
with the source docs).

Great. I think this would be an excellent basis for our discussions.
Maybe we can just start by taking a look at what you're working on. Will
try to take a look and prepare something for discussion within this week.
