Yeah, I read this.  In this case, though, the markup decisions have been
done.  The question is how best to process the markup. And there is no one
answer, but maybe there's a trend.

I can see Sean's point about XSLT not being hte One True Way.  I tried
number 3 already (but in reverse): if you're docs are in any way similar,
then you have one helluva XSLT script to write.  On the other hand, what's
better?  DOM? Data binding?  

I see pipelining as an enabling technology rather than a solution in itself,
but maybe I have blinkers on.
