hmm. we need to be clear on this. is it the "lingua franca" rich interchange format
to make digital publishng easy, or is it the archival format from which one derives
formats which then to make new products?

hmm. maybe.

if you give me the transformations, I would add them to the family under
Stylesheets on Sourceforge, and then OxGarage would find them

to explain further, Oxgarage looks for files called "plugin.xml". The one for
TEI to CSV looks like this:

 <extension plugin-id="pl.psnc.dl.ege.root" point-id="XslConverter" id="TEItoCSVconverter">
                <parameter id="class" value="pl.psnc.dl.ege.MultiXslConverter"/>
                <parameter id="name" value="TEI to CSV"/>
                <parameter id="xsluri" value="profiles/default/csv/to.xsl" />
                <parameter id="iMimeType" value="text/xml" />
                <parameter id="iFormat" value="TEI" />
                <parameter id="iDescription" value="TEI P5 XML Document" />
                <parameter id="iType" value="text" />           
                <parameter id="oMimeType" value="text/csv" />
                <parameter id="oFormat" value="csv" />
                <parameter id="oDescription" value="Comma-Separated Values (.csv)" />           
                <parameter id="oType" value="spreadsheet" />
                <parameter id="visibility" value="true" />
                <parameter id="cost" value="11" />

this explains what the input and output formats are, and what the XSLT is to do the job.

we'd bung in your file, write a plugin, and lo! it would appear
