I see where the statement comes from, but doesn't processing begin by 
loading the template file?  Data injection from flow is step 2.  Loading 
the template file seems like the generation step to me, not the data 

With XSLT/STX, the stylesheet is the manipulative/transformative 
vector.  With a flow template transformer, it's the flow object model.  
With the i18n transformer, it's the l10n catalog(s).

Your dividing line seems somewhat arbitrary.  What am I missing?
