RE:  How recursively iterate over entire document?
It's in tracking the dependencies that I see the problems.

If it can be mapped out, I don't think it's infeasible. And we know about micropipelining in XSLT2 -- (I've even done it). What concerns me would be tangling up what is supposed to happen when (or maybe, what would interest me is how to express and manage the dependencies).

Actually, I don't think this is quite so impossible. Given the evaluate()
and node-set() extensions, it seems quite feasible to write a recursive
process that reads an XPath expression, creates a new tree that modifies the
nodes selected by that expression in some way, and then continues by reading
the next XPath expression to create another new tree and so on. Whether it's
a good application design is another matter, but I don't think it's
