I think wires have probably been crossed. OXML doesn't need to include

No, it's not. They're doing the main structural conversion in XSLT, but
then they're using a post-processing output to do transformations that
are too difficult/cumbersome to do in XSLT.
The two examples I gave are being coded in C# in the CleverAge project.
