The SAXON framework seems well suited for doing XSL-like transformations,
but doesn't solve the problem of combining different XML processing
components into a single computation - at least, it doesn't seem to have
have any advantage over the SAX interfaces in this very specific regard.
SAXON does make one wonder what would have become of XSL if it was designed
as a procedural instead of declerative language...
