Then, I would suggest application/xsl-xml (other than application/xml).  
Since XSL stylesheets are not readable for casual readers, text/* is not 
appropriate  (see the criteria explained by Ned Freed [1]).  It might be a 
good idea to follow the "*/*-xml" contention, since you do not want to lose 
the support of generic XML processing such as XPointer.  

I think that text/xml is not appropriate for XSLT since an XSLT stylesheet 
is not readable by casual users.
