With Saxon 6.0, if you use //Message it will build a node-set in memory containing all the Message elements, and subsequent references to //Message will use this node-set rather than searching the source document again. So some of the conventional wisdom about not using //X may no longer be true: I'd be interested to see any practical measurements. Obviously it depends on how many Message elements there are. And defining a key should still be faster for this kind of example. (Optimising this to auto-generate an index is an exercise for the next release but N).
