[Mono-list] - XslCompiledTransform.Load missing overloads

NET XslCompiledTransform has horrible design choice that there is *no* 
public API
exposed to make compiled XSLT implementable. There is no choice for us 
to implement
it at least from public documentation. We won't support it beyond any 

(I feel almost no need to add this comment, but: loading stylesheet by 
compiled type is
newer stuff than we have finished 2.0 API. Besides/anyways I don't 
really care about tiny,
cosmetic, minor API missings like other API lands.)
