that's used a lot in msxml (where you can write it easily as an
extension function that access the MS DOM's .xml method on nodes.

It's more flexible but (as a consequence) requires more work by the
stylesheet author if you have a stylesheet that's writing xhtml and
suddenly you decide to want to add a couple of templates adding in asp
or jsp <% syntax. 

If you have an explicit serialiser in the text method, you'd have to
change every template using literal result elements to produce a
serialisation (or I suppose grab the wgole output of the original
transform into a variable and then serialise that)
