How are we disagreeing? I said "specifies its result as XML" not
"specifies that its result is XML". In other words it describes its
result in terms of an XML document. That XML document doesn't have to
be created. An XSL processor is perfectly entitled to create C++
rendering objects that are described by the XML instead of objects
representing XML elements.
