Instead of extending DSSSL (or trying to enforce coding conventions),
I think that the best approach would be to maintain your stylesheet
info in a more constrained, proprietary format and export it to
DSSSL. As far as I know, this is the approach that most RAD systems
take -- they cannot import arbitrary C++ or Java code.
