I think you have things mixed up a bit conceptually.  Actions are pieces 
of code that are tied to the pipeline, not the XML document.  You use an 
Action to modify the pipeline, not the XML stream.  If you want to 
modify the XML stream, you have to create a Transformer.

Same thing, you need to write a Transformer (or a logic sheet).  Your 
code can then perform any arbitrary code on the XML stream.  If you need 
to modify the pipeline based on the results of your transformer code, 
you should can set some session variables and write a Selector and/or 
Action to tweak the pipeline based on those session variables.
