Ok, the actual element type in the dsig namespace has now been removed from 
the spec, dtd, and xsd, though the text still reads:

The normative specification for XSL Transformations is [XSLT]. The XSL style 
sheet or transform to be evaluated appears as the character content of a 
transform parameter child element named XSLT. The root element of a XSLT 
style sheet within a Transform element should SHOULD be a namespace 
qualified <stylesheet> element.
