Ouch. Yup.

Yes, I think we need some larger test data sets if we want to take
performance discussions beyond generalities. It would also help to have
some idea of what environment the XSLT will be executing in, what are
the parser choices, what kind of performance you're getting at the
moment and what kind of performance you need to get.

Absolutely. Some optimisation here could get pretty near the heart of
the problem. On the other hand we could end up with a situation where we
have to check each parser for the relative speed of:

	$left[count(. | $next) > 1]
	$left[generate-id(.) != generate-id($next)]
	set:difference($left, $next)

(Just joking, I trust...)
