Because "subsetting" is a codeword for "jump on your bandwagon and 
rabbit on futilely until it is time for tea."  It is like a slow motion ping-pong ball 
on a billiard table full of mousetraps. 

The only new information on this utterly worn ground was those benchmarks:
the trends and variations were interesting, in particular that building a 
DOM seems to be at a minimum as expensive as parsing (esp in Java).  
And it looked like sometimes DOM building was much more expensive than 
parsing.  And quite a variation in the performance of different 
parsers/DOMbuilders/validators/XSLT still.
