The tone of "Associating Style Sheets with XML documents Version 1.0" 
suggests a segue like this - right before the 'Faithful Rendition 
Guarantee', since the end of that section speaks of other 'related' specifications 
(XProc being one of them):

"The mechanisms by which GRDDL links transformation algorithms to source 
documents for automated processing can be considered as a more 
appropriate recommendation than xml-stylesheet Processing Instructions.

Though deprecated, xml-stylesheet PIs are widely supported by 
major browser vendors and generally deployed for automated, presentation processing.

Although GRDDL is primarily concerned with dialect interpretation, the 
expectation that a user agent would trigger XML transformations against a 
source document automatically is the same in both GRDDL and xml-stylesheet 

Perhaps as a section by itself? - 6a Prior stylesheet associations / Deprecated stylesheet associations
