Sorry, but I don't understand how inserting the content of <xsp:expr>
"as is" (i.e. ignoring the <xsp:expr> tag) can help to consume the
output of another tag.

In C1, it's easy : you can play with the "document" and "xspCurrentNode"
variables. In C2 this could be achieved with "contentHandler", either by
wrapping it or by masking it with a block-local variable. In that last
case, however, we should remove all hard references to the class member
(i.e. "this.contentHandler") in xsp.xsl.

<xsl:template match="lib:inputModifier">
  XMLPipe pipe = new MyPipe(contentHandler);
    // local variable hides class member or previous variable
    ContentHandler contentHandler = pipe;


    // end of block un-hides contentHandler

Toughts about that ?
