I have an XSLT that does (large parts of) the other direction 
(RFC2629->xmlspec). From that experience, it's probably simple to 
implement *something* that transforms most of the format, but you'll 
need to keep in mind that both formats are not equally expressive, and 
that the IETF output format still needs to be readable in plain ASCII, 
so you may have to massage the input file as well.

Best regards, Julian

P.S.: I can help with doing this, if you choose to go this way.
