If you did not 'insinuate' :) this, then I certainly intend to.

The beauty of it is, we can do this step by step: Parts of the site can
remain in pure HTML while others are changed to XML (which turns into
HTML afterwards). People visiting the site will see what they are seeing
now, simple HTML pages.

XSL (and XSLT, which concerns us more) is an XML application, but CSS
is not. IIRC, the idea and work on CSS predates the XML standard.
But maybe CSS was reworked along the lines of XHTML, I don't know.

I guess, the work will not be done by then and there _will_ be something
left for you to contribute.
