Yeah, I get this.  odd. The xhtml document seems valid so it must be
my xpath.

That wouldn't work even if the mysterious error above was fixed,
since the relative URI of the XSLT transformation isn't right for the
URLs from the cvsweb.  You'd need to put the testsuite somewhere in
the "real" web or run it from a cvs checkout as you are doing here.

Somehow I missed finding this test suite, but I did say I was doing it
from a quick read through.

My pleasure.

It might help if the xpaths to get the transforms were in the document too.

I should try alternative ones such as to find grddl in XML.  Guessing
something like //[@data-view:interpreter] with
  data-view defined as http://www.w3.org/2003/g/data-view#
