[oXygen-user] R: Additional XSLT stylesheet in docbooktransformation

We did not use profile-docbook.xsl because it does not apply all the 
profiling attribute values always correctly for complex DocBook 
documents. We tested that version of profiling stylesheet on a complex 
document and it allowed in the output some subsections which did not 
have the profiling attribute value set as the profiling parameter of the 
transformation. The profile.xsl stylesheet did not have this problem so 
we used that in the Oxygen scenarios.
