   Perhaps I'm mistaken, but I was under the impression that
<xbl:binding xbl:element="[W3C Selector]"> could be used for binding.

   As for styling, I don't see an obvious way to add XSL-FO from an
external file, although I'm sure it could be used inline. I don't think
the spec says XSL stylesheets can't be used, but I do see where it's
specified how to do it either.
