You forgot one essential thing in there: Jelly can contain explicit XML 
content making it more than appropriate for elementary XML-file-based 
data processing.
Such elementary thing as merging before handing to a stylesheet and 
still processing its output with  a bit more scripting is something 
that I have only seen at other places in ten times more verbose ways.
