It is probably not useful to mention RDF-based formats here. It seems
unlikely that XSLT would be very useful for making N-Triples or Turtle
more human-readable. XSLT is only useful for transforming XML-based
formats; yes, some RDF serialisations are XML-based, but those are already
covered by saying that XSLT can be used on XML-based formats.
