Yes, but it's easier to work with if you use XSLT along with CSS. I
don't see any problem with using XSLT, using something for a purpose
its not designed for is only a problem if the technology doesn't suit
what you need it for; in thise case XSLT does a superb job of styling

For those that are saying that the hook is the main problem, here's my
reasons why something like this should be core:

1) feed: and plain XML is a usability hole.
2) What happens if two scripts try to output an <?xml-stylesheet ?>?
Which XSLT transform template does the browser use?
3) Similarly with CSS, we could have declaration clashes.
