Being browser based, we have to rely on what the browser gives us, which is an XSLT 1.0 engine which does complete transformations. We achieve 'incremental' updates by doing a diff after every transform and updating only the modified pieces of the HTML output.

So did Ephox EditLive! for XML (now defunct?). I haven't used Xopus, but I hear that it also uses XSLT in this same way. There are some constraints on how you must write the XSLT to get the bindings to work (InfoPath also uses additional annotations on the XSLT), but nothing too onerous. I believe in all of the above cases only XSLT 1.0 is supported. XSLT 2.0 poses additional challenges, what with the ability to create temporary result trees and what not.
