To determine when to apply the Rule of Least Power 
determine when maximum reuse/indexability of the data is

Hmmm. Maybe it comes across wrong.
I don't think the message is so much about programming procedural  
things using
declarative languages and tricks.  There is a common theme that the  
should be analyzable.

Have you given up using CSS? CSS is declarative -- not a general  
functional programming language, but a specific set of declarations  
you can make about style.  It is generally in its target application  
space simpler and clearer than the XSLT to do the same thing.
