 So any XSLT 3.0 user should know that although a transformation is
"streamable" according to the standard, it can crash at any moment, in
any given execution, due to ... well, lack of support for streaming


So, this is an example of proposing a solution to a 2-dimensional
problem, that doesn't handle the 1-dimensional projection of the same
problem...

Would anyone seriously recommend using such a solution?

Thank you!
