Copying into a variable really does force the processor to copy the
entire document tree. (Because the nodes in the copy have to have
distinct identities from the nodes in the original) It would be much
better to use the original document directly via document() (or
equivalently use an empty variable binding and use select= rather than
an xsl:choose inside the xsl:variable.
It's supposed to work, perhaps if you posted a small example that
failed, we'd see what was wrong.
