XSLT stylesheet vcard RDF to VCF

Does anyone know of any stylesheets out that are already built to transform the RDF vCard format (XML) to regular vCard file format (.vcf)? I've searched google for a while now and haven't found anything.

You'll need to find more specific examples of the format, particularly
the RDF version of it (http://www.w3.org/TR/vcard-rdf might be helpful)

RDF is in general not practical to process with XSLT, because RDF isn't
dependent on XML and there are potentially many ways to serialise the
same RDF document into a number of different XML documents. XSLT, being
an XML tool, sees alll of these as different documents and has to be
explicitly coded in the application to handle them.

As to processing RDF with XSLT in practical terms, then this varies
between easy (if you control the RDF generator and can guarantee the
"style" in which the document is generated) through to impossible (for
large RDF documents from external sources).
