Let me put it this way; XSLT is a nice to have rather than a must-have
on every single job I've ever had.

I'm part of a 3-person department where XSLT is a must-have skill for every one of us. Reason being that our entire workflow depends on various pipelines that transform document XML from one schema or format to another, both in preprocessing and in online Web delivery. For example, the website founders.archives.gov as designed is extremely reliant on XSLT 2.0/3.0 as implement in Saxon and MarkLogic. It all could have been done with different technologies, of course, but for large sets of semi-structured documents XSLT/XQuery are the most natural environment.
