For the people who only know LaTeX, "style files" would be sufficient.
For those who actually want to use a different format, I'd like to
mention that some, but only some of teTeX's formats are provided by
tetex-base.  Well, and instead of a correct "input files for a subset of
the formats and styles" I prefer the shorter "subset of formats and
styles" - unless someone finds a phrase that contains "formats" and is
still correct.

Thanks, Frank
