cause the system to do run-time checks that would otherwise not be
performed. On the other hand, it gives the system compile-time
that may be useful to perform optimizations. I would use it as widely
possible because it speeds the development cycle and catches bugs more
efficiently, and not worry too much about any effect on performance.
I mean in the specific case of passing a reference vs. creating a
temporary tree: is the former by definition more efficient? I've seen
you mention on a few occasions that it's expensive to create an
unnecessary node (e.g. using xsl:value-of vs. xsl:sequence).
