I don't think that's much of a problem, really. The question is what
*we* think. Is it OK to leave it all to XSLT, which would mean going

  TM -> TMQL -> XML -> XSLT -> txt

or whether it's better to be able to go

  TM -> TMQL -> txt

Personally, I'm worried about going via XSLT. It's much more work, and
might not always be very convenient.
