Gee... yes, that's one of the things XSLT is not supposed to do.

Dropping libraries is easy, what's not so easy is the dropping of the 
Javascript code poping up here and there.

Another solution would be to make every template "dual":
<xsl:template match="fi:validation-message">
		<xsl:when test="$ajax-mode='true'">
			<span dojoType="forms:infopopup"
			<span style="display:none"

Come to think of it, there should be three modes, not teo: ajax, 
javascript, no-javascript.
Hence, ajax='true' should be changed too, maybe to 
client='static|dynamic|ajax'... hmm... the matter is getting hairy.
