Yes!  We have already started developing real xml/xsl pages for our site
.  Grab your IE 5.0 and look at this page:


and you can also view the accompanying packages.xsl and packages.dtd.  

Do you see the beauty of it all.  XMl allows full separation of content
from style markup.  The whole packages.xml page is less than 2k!  

XML rips!!
