How else would you like to use the device profile information
within the server, when not using XSL or CSS?

It is my understanding form reading the W3C activity statement,
that the server generates different content dependent on the
device profile. The content can be generated by use of XSL.

See, http://www.w3c.org/Mobile/Activity

" If a content provider wants information to be available for
  different devices, different versions of that content can be
  generated, for example using only the text modules, or perhaps
  using full graphics with scripting. Thus in its document profile,
  the document specifies the expected capabilities of the browser
  in terms of XHTML support, style sheet support and so on. 
"

Hence you can generate different XHTML files, making use of
different XHTML modules.

Best regards,

Peter Vogel
