Keith,

Hopefully, you've seen my Dataincubator posting re. all the xslt 
sytlesheets [1] that drive the 30+ sources we RDFize :-) That said, I'll 
take a look at your stuff and see how it compares to ours re. fidelity etc..

Others: I've just reiterated to the dataincubator community, by way of 
source directory exposure, that our Sponger Cartridges (Extractors or 
Mappers) have been Open Source since inception (circa. 2006). Thus, it 
would be nice for the community to leverage the base we have en route to 
generating a more coherent Web of Dynamically Linked Data via RDFization 
(or Wrapping).  Tweaking  and fixing existing mappers trumps writing 
from scratch :-)
