Read my answer to antonio, it will perhaps be more clear. XSLProcessor is
actually limited to the transformer role despite the fact it's a real

I would hang up on such a suggestion too. Can't you predict the effect of
<serialize type="xsl" src="xhtml.xsl"/> ? I think that a turing-machine is
sitting inside every component logic no ?
