XSLT isn`t required for the form design, but you can use it to transform imported/exported XML-Data.

So you can import an XML files data which was created with another application (MS Excel for example) or you can export only a portion of your form data.

I use XSLT to translate my forms. You can get Designer to create translation IDs associated with all your text objects and run the XDP file through an XSLT to get a list of all strings and their associated translations. You can then put it in Excel to have it translated. Once translated there's another XSLT you use with your original XDP. That way every time there's a coding or design change, you don't have to double your effort.
