Absolutely, this is exactly the kind of thing that XSLT is meant for and 
the premise for RDF extraction protocols such as GRDDL.  The value in this 
is that such a mapping is written once for each target RDF/OWL ontology 
and the translation from hierarchical syntax (XML) to knowledge 
representation (RDF) is achieved without retrofitting either XML or RDF 
into representation roles they weren't suited for.
