I presume you are pointing to the section "Self-Customizing
Stylesheets" in this document, which describes building
a titlepage stylesheet from an XML specification file
using a special XSL transformation.  But the paper describes
it at the architectural level, not a practical level.

In the distribution, the template/README file says there
is "rudimentary" support for this feature.  Is the
implementation incomplete, or is it complete but just in
need of some documentation describing how to use it?
If it is the latter, I could take a stab at it.
If it is the former, I'll leave it to you.  8^)
