Last I heard [1], but it will take time (few months, my speculation).

You got the plugin part right, but it should be a first-class
transformation plugin (each set of tooling has their own APIs,
Rational has a transformation API that is useful here). XSLT is going
to be fragile (not to mention tricky to begin with -- have you seen
the raw XMI ;-)
