Thanks for explanation Joerg! Even I play with Cocoon for some time I don't know low-level
of Xalan but I think it only proves value of Cocoon that hides all these nasty details. :)

I see. Then, agreed with you. Anyway, I have taken effort of tweaking our "components" and
test-cases so all of them pass now. You probably already noticed attached patches to COCOON-2155
I would like to see them committed as soon as we can upgrade to Xalan 2.7.1.

So the question should be addressed to Antonio: Where the jar of Xalan you committed into
branch comes from? :)
