It seems right in spirit.

But, afaict, it's just a "global" stylesheet. Which is fine, I suppose, 
but I was kind of hoping for a "macro" like style sheet that would be 
evaluated "In a context". I.e., only on the fragment to which it was 
attached. But whatever :) I don' t think I'm *committed* to that, and 
maybe it makes the syntax nastier or the sheets nastier...who knows :)

The missing bit of course is making RDF/XML sheet aware so that RDF/XML 
parsers do the right thing (i.e., process the stylesheet or die) before 
parsing.

Cheers,
Bijan.
