Wouldn't it be fabulous if you could take a
checkstyle.xml, run it through a tool and generate a
text description of the checks being produced as input
to a coding standards document?

I too would be interested in this feature, even if it merely
generates a modified version of the API documentation for
each of the enabled checks, it would still provide a
reasonable human-readable reference.
I think this would be pretty easy to implement if the API documentation has a separate page for each check (as opposed to one page per grouping). You could then just create URLs based on what you find in checkstyle.xml.
