Hmmm. That sounds like it'd be true if the internal representation is a DOM
object and the XSL processor didn't have to reparse it. I guess that's how
C1 works?

In C2, when everything is SAX based, wouldn't each processor in the chain
have to re-stream its input in order to 'fire' SAX events?

Per.
