  "AsmXml does not supports namespaces and external entity references."

Frankly, if a product only does half the job then it doesn't really 
matter if it's ten or a hundred times faster.

However, as a proof of concept it's certainly interesting. I've been 
surprised that it's taken so long for someone to do this. And in the 
context of Saxon, a faster parser would make a big difference - parsing 
time often dominates transformation time these days.
