should, actually.

Developers of transformations should make available representations in
widely-supported formats. XSLT version 1[XSLT1] is the format most
widely supported by GRDDL-aware agents as of this writing, though though
XSLT2[XSLT2] deployment is increasing. While technically Javascript, C,
or virtually any other programming language may be used to express
transformations for GRDDL, XSLT is specifically designed to express XML
to XML transformations and has some good safety characteristics; XQuery
has similar characteristics to XSLT, though use of XQuery in GRDDL
implementation is less widely deployed at the time of this writing.
