Saxon implements $x using a data structure called a MemoClosure where items
from the input are read on-demand, and then remembered. Reading $x[1000]
will cause the first 1000 items to be read and retained in memory; reading
$x[10] finds that the tenth item is already in memory

Maybe not store the 1000 lines, except the last, but just create a map N --> offset(N) for the Nth line, N < 1000

The current mechanism isn't specialized to unparsed-text-lines(), it works on any iterable XPath expression (which means nearly any XPath expression). I certainly wouldn't want to create a mechanism specific to this particular case.

I have been doing things to make the StringValue object used to hold each of the strings a more lightweight object, as a result of an exercise to reduce the amount of memory used to enforce key/keyref constraints in XSD when validating a gigabyte-sized instance document, and these savings will affect many other use cases.
