For those that don't know me, I'm a member of the Documentation Team. I
also have some background with XSLT (not as huge as neysx, our leader,
has, but still I'm not really a begginer in this area).
That said, I completely agree with the choice of latex in this
particular case. If there was a fixed request on GudeXML, this document
would not have been at all written yet.
