I don't think so - we have around 12-15 applications using hundreds of
different xml documents / stylesheets following this approach and did not
run into problems for the last 4 years. Since we anyway create most of the
xml documents dynamically on the server, we usually assign the correct
stylesheet on the server.

I don't think that there is a need to instantiate the XslTransform object.
To be honest, not having to instantiate the XslTransform would be a
benefit if you just want to transform a xml containing information about
what stylesheet to use.
The way the current implementation works, I need to know the stylesheet
URL before I can instantiate the XslTransform object and afterwards I call
one of its transform method passing in the xml to be transformed. I'd
think it would be handy, to directly call one of the transformation
methods just giving an xml and I'm done. Anyhow, I understood that
apparently we do not share the same opinion about that :-)
I don't get your point regarding the simple parsing of an XML instance
that contains a xsl stylehsheet PI nothing will happen - what is your
expectation in this respect ? If it would be automatically transformed by
the browser, what is the dojo.xml.XslTransform package purpose then ? If
initiate a xsl transformation yourself. This is different if such an xml
transformed automatically using the implied stylesheet.
