Great! It is really nice to see how good that looks, how easy to read
it is, and how efficient it must be :-)

I could not find a list of parsers implementing this in any language,
but it is cool enough to be worth implementing. I think it would be
worth for a WebId example to show a GRDDL working with both XSPARQL
and XSLT even if few parsers for XSLTs exist, as the critique of XSLTs
will clearly be that it is not efficient.

If I can find an XSPARQL implementation, then it would be another
great use case to take it to generate the XHTML version of our
ontologies :-)
