It's not just speed.  It's things like "namespace stack depth" and
"current element token length" and so on.  Those aren't speed issues, but
are more akin to caching issues.  (With today's CPUs caching is often at
least as important as speed.)  The amount of *state* you have to hold is
the factor I'm talking about.  These effect the overall system design.

No, it is not an issue for us.  (I won't explain why).  I tried to explain
above why it can be an issue.  I wouldn't be surprised if we have to deal
with it sometime.
