Ew, no. Utterly un-awklike and doing awk-like transformations with XSLT is
really quite painful. (And yes, you can do awklike languages for things
other than text streams: see gvpr(1) for example.)

(One of many problems is XSLT's heavy use of <>, which makes it very
annoying to use from the shell prompt. Another is its astonishing
verbosity. Another is its total lack of good taste in design... also the
functional nature of it, while one of its nicer aspects, fits very badly
with the shell in my experience.)
