I still think of it as just a three-stage process (parsing/building,
transforming, serializing). Perhaps I should've said whitespace stripping is
"a part of" the transformation process. Does that help?

How about this:

>   document ---> node tree ---> node tree ---> node tree ---> document
          (parsing)     ( T R A N S F O R M I N G )   (serializing)

                        transformation) transformation)
