Wouldn't that be overkill?

Because of the way XSP works. In the input XML document you may have
processing-instruction telling the XSP engine which logicsheet to apply
next. The resulting document may have other processing-instructions
generated from the former logicsheet (logicsheets depending on other
logicsheets). Thus the resulting documents has to be instected by the
XSP engine to evaluate and apply them, and so forth. And this is IMHO
best done with DOM.
