 I really wasn't concerned so much with the internal representation of the
style; to the user
the style is what's in the GUI, not an XML stylesheet to be edited by hand.

To the average home user, but likely not for a professional environment.

And what about xml schema?

The latest incarnation of Docbook (which should be the target of any scribus
end-to-end printing solution, IMHO) doesn't use xslt or FO. It uses xml
schema, for just that reason: FO isn't as capable. There are methods in
place already to update an older docbook to the new format, but it's
difficult to go in the opposite direction, for the same reason.  That xslt
is widely adopted is not a sufficient reason to implement it, because it's
pretty much a guarantee that it will be gone in a few years. Or rather, I
should say much less popular than using xml schema.
