What specifically is it that you like about link views? Cos at the moment, the 
alternative way of gathering links is with an invisible (automatically inserted) 
LinkGatherer transformer stage right before the serializer. If that was replaced with a 
LinkGatheringTransformer that you could use to gather links (and place them in a List 
in the object model), but that returns the SAX events unchanged to the next stage, 
you'd have your link view with a single pass. Even building in an XSLT stage that is 
used before extracting the links. Just a thought.

Alternatively we could try Vadim's comment on using a CachingPoint pipeline.
