Yes, sure, but since most of these optimizations are algorithmical
(means that it's possible to write a program that does them for you, as
Scott suggested), why in hell should we spend time/effort/energy and
brain cells to do something that the XSLT processor should do for us?

It's like optimizing SQL: it's a black art.

The serious databases optimize the SQL for you, so the serious XSLT
prcessors should optimize the XSLT for you.

At least, that's how I see it.

                          able to give birth to a dancing star.
