without looking in detail - are you able to use d3.js in the browser to
do the fotce calulation part? It might not be faster but watching the
SVG objects  move  gradually into equilibrium has its own fascination.

Most of these algorithms are likely to be at best O(nB2) C Niterations,
so there's some inherent  slowness.

Looking slightly more  closely -
* consider using xsl:iterate instead of a recursive template at line
* run the stylesheet on the command-line and have Saxon write out
profiling information to see where the time goes
* add as= to any templates * variables that don't already have them
* use on-no-match="shallow-copy" on an xsl:mode declaration for
ac:SVTPositioning and delete the template on line 303
* consider using maps rather than elements during positioning, as
creating DOM elements in a browser is likely to be slow

But an algorithm with worse than n^2 complexity is always likely to
have problems as n increases - the trick (as with e.g. QuickSort) is to
remember complexity is usually an average best case, and find values
for which the algorithm does better. E.g. removing nodes from
consideration when they stop moving under a certain amount each time.
