Where is the csv coming from?  Can you output the original data as some kind
of XML instead of csv?  Many programs these days can do that -- e.g., Excel
and FilemakerPro can both export their own flavors of very basic XML.  Then
you'd be able to work with XML in/XML out, which might be the easiest.

The validation I think can happen with other services / technologies from the

transformation and feed the output to a validator to check that the document
is at least well-formed and, if there's a schema, that it conforms to the

Is there a substantial advantage that you see XSLT giving you over other
