        You can apply multiple web.config transforms sequentially by manually specifying them in your MSBuild (.csproj) file. It is also possible to apply multiple transforms in your Web Deploy .pubxml files (these are MSBuild files too), however it is more difficult as the paths are different at deploy-time.

        web config transforms should be easier to implement, Child configs should just overwrite parent settings without wrestling with xslt transfomations

        Hi Khurram, you should be able to do this today but it would require some tweaking. If you have any questions regarding how to do it please email me at sayedha [AT] {Microsoft}[DOTcom].
