Actually todays Mozilla XBL spec uses XPath for that (although the
Mozilla XBL implementation uses only bare names); the sXBL spec was
hesitating between XPath and CSS Selectors (most implementors of sXBL
favouring XPath); and XBL2 uses CSS selectors.

And the most usual case is to create markup - HTML or SVG - rather
than just CSS styling.

But apart from that, yes.
