Neither the source tree nor the result tree is necessarily an instance of
the DOM.  In fact, the result tree often is not materialized, as many XSLT
processors serialize the result of the transformation as it is being

It is possible to apply a transformation to part of the source tree, but no
XSLT processor I know of modifies the source tree in-place.  In fact, such
behavior is not allowed in a conformant XSLT processor.
