I would echo Thorstens comments here. Most of the problems you have 
identified in this thread were part of the original inspiration for 
Thorsten when he created the first instance of what is now the Dispatcher.

You used the words "test the dispatcher". That is exactly what you would 
be doing. The Dispatcher is usable (I use it myself on a couple of 
production sites, but it has some very rough edges. We need more people 
like you to help us find those rough edges.

In your case I think the pay-off will be high since you can do all that 
you describe much more easily with the Dispatcher. You are having to 
work with the XSL and/or xmap in the other solutions you have examined 
so the "extra" work in having to touch code occasionally is not an issue
