well strictly speaking you don't have serialize the result to a
source, but it does happen behind the scenes... (I know you know that,
just making it clearer)

For the app I'm currently working on, I use very simple small xqueries
which are there purely to provide input to the transforms, just
because I'm forced to.  Once XSLT can work directly directly against
the database, XQuery's days could be numbered.
