XML + CSS is a completely different thing. IIRC, it has no notion of pagination, it doesn't do automatic placement of figures or tables, it doesn't do auto-numbering of anything, it doesn't handle bibliographies for you, etc. It just seems to me to be a completely different tool for a completely different purpose. It'll probably give you more control over the "look" of the paper, but then again, making the thing as a giant bitmap would give you a lot of control too, but it'd be easier to not do that...
