I think I was not clear enough; I'm against allowing jx:set to change value of 
any internal to JXTG variable too. This will force you to do more complicated 
stuff (which is usually done using procedural approach) somewhere outside of 
JXTG, and in JXTG you use jx:set similarly to XSLT's xsl:variable, to hold 
immutable computed value within current execution scope.
