When we talk about scalability for XQuery, I think we are talking about the ability to efficiently query databases in the range of 10 Gig and up, making use of indexes and query optimization strategies.
A good implementation of XSLT, combined with a well-written stylesheet that takes performance into account, can be quite fast for many scenarios in the EAI/B2B domain, but still woefully inadequate for querying databases like those described in the above paragraph.
