Yup, pretty much exactly where I was at with:

https://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=27717#c1 (wow, that
was 4.5 years ago!)

Haven't had the time, or nerve ;-), to go back...yet...

I'm pretty sure I dumped it into an email here a while back, but one
of the things I thought would be worth investigating is to use JAXP
1.3 (https://jaxp.dev.java.net/) and integrate with the
javax.xml.xpath API instead of Xerces/Xalan. I'm pretty sure JAXP 1.3
got backported to Java 1.3, but I'm not sure if the same thing
happened with JAXP 1.4.
