  There is a strong hint that it was designed to be possible,
 check the attribute 7.1.3 part: 
"Adding an attribute to an element after children have been added to it"
 is an error, it is clear that the goal is to be able to stream the opening
of the tag event before any content of the element.
 I didn't implemented this possibility, but I kept an eye on it through
the development of libxslt, and I don't remember any technical obstacle.
This kind of properties are not reached if they are not a design goal :-)
I didn't checked the XSLT 1.0 requirement document, maybe it's there.
