This does not work all that well with XSL and DOM,
since the xpath syntax allows access to the whole
document; hence most implementations of tools will
try to read in the entire "document" before proceeding.

I liked John Tigue's suggestion of
using MIME for this purpose.  Perhaps a SAX 
parser should be able to read MIME?
