Many thanks for the replies so far. I'm now progressing to look at the
mapping file or "high-level description of a stereotyped transformation",
and was wondering whether I could use xpath statements in this file to
identify data I want to extract from particular elements/attributes, or
identify even the elements themselves.
The question that subsequently arises when creating a mapping file as such
is: Can one pass xpath statements as variables into templates, and then act
on them (against the source document)?

It sounds to me as if you should treat your "configuration file" as a
high-level description of a stereotyped transformation, and use it to
generate a specific XSLT stylesheet for a particular transformation. You
can do this stylesheet generation in XSLT, of course.
