How about 'blockquote' example? There XHTML was used for content and *user* CSS controlled how link should be represented. XSLT can not replace user CSS.
As to document style sheet, here one can claim that selectors and generated content can be replaced with XSLT, formatting oriented properties can be replaced with XSL FO and links can be replaced with XLink. But are not we talking about CSS, and requirement of CSS users? We don't ask to create link somehow, we are asking for convenient and flexible control over represantation of hyperlinks, similar to Opera's and Prince's linking extensions.
