Yes, that's another way we could resolve the issue. It would also deal with
the problem of a transformation failing after writing a secondary result

Saxon currently commits a secondary result document to disk when the
<xsl:result-document/> instruction completes execution, and I suspect Bryan
was indeed exploiting this fact.
