While working on WritableSourceTransformer, I was going to look at making a
SourceIOTransformer, that would have two verbs :

	<source:write src="" ..... />

	<source:read src="" ..... />

What do you guys think about this?
This is kind of the logical conclusion to the symmetry provided by the new
WritableSource interface.

It would not completely replace XInclude because it would not be able to do
any caching (?). The transformer in the sitemap has no knowledge of what it
is going to be asked to do (read or write) or on which resource, this would
be for completely dynamic operations I imagine.

What do you think?
