[xsl] Storing output tree in a variable and stripping

I just investigated the possibility to store the output tree in a
... in order to strip away all empty elements without having (a) to
create a separate stylesheet which would do this job or (b) complex
if-then structures in order to prevent the creation of an empty element
Below is the xslt-code which is responsible for selecting and displaying
only non-empty nodes which had been created beforehand by the given
templates and stored in the $outputRaw variable.
<xsl:for-each select="$outputRaw/*[text() | *]">
Although this solution seems to me pretty elegant in comparison to (a) a
separate stylesheet or (b) if-then structures which would only bloat the
xslt-code , I'm not quite sure if this solution is a good idea regarding
the performance of the stylesheet.
I would be very thankful for any clues and advice.
