Workflows, Manage Permissions options missing in XSLT dataview ECB Menu

When we convert the SharePoint List view to XSLT dataview, “Workflows” will be missing in context Menus. Not only Workflows, Manage Permissions, Edit Document, and some more options will be missing.

Workflows, Manage Permissions options missing in XSLT dataview ECB Menu

The only workaround so far I know:

Add a new column to the dataview, say the title for the column as “Workflows”, and we can use this code in XSL to get the Workflows link as in the list view page.

<TD>
<a href="http://SharePoint.com/_layouts/Workflow.aspx?ID={@ID}&List={@GUID}&Source=http://sharepoint.com/List-DocumentLib-URL/Your-View-URL.aspx">Workflows</a>
</TD>
