This is just an implementation detail.  I still don't understand why using
XSLT in the "XSP" step of your model changes things.  SAXON has long been
compiling XSLT into Java code.

Well, it helps a little, but doesn't change my mind.  While I (think I)
understand your points, and many of them are good ones, I don't think they
justify the new language.  In my opinion the gains made by reuse of the
XSLT syntax and semantics outweigh the gains made by creating new syntax
and semantics.  You can still build the your model on XSLT, and without a
lot of loss in what you're trying to achieve.
