OK, now you've told us what you don't want, how about what you _do_
want?  There are a lot of filters available, and the single most powerful
one (mod_publisher) is itself highly extensible by plugging in your
own modules to its parse.  Chain more than one filter if you really
need to - though it should rarely be necessary to chain more than
one filter in a single class (such as "markup transforming filter").

XSLT would be a different filter, and can of course be chained.
But of course, XSLT cannot be streamed, so any XSLT will kill
your performance if you have any larger documents.
