I'm after setting up a namespace to do dynamic form processing/presentation.
I want to use one XML page to describe the form, and a second XML page
to describe how to map it to the persistent data layer--maybe a third to
describe access issues.

So, back to the question in the title:

Which is easier to develop: an XSP page that reads multiple sources,
or create a Transformer like the SQL transformer.  I like the ability
to manage the mappings and configurations in the Sitemap.
