It seems unwise to me to mandate anything that isn't verifiable. Mandating
that the processor can handle a recursion depth of 1000 is one thing,
mandating how it should achieve this is another. Even then, specifying
limits is a difficult area because it depends both on the XSLT processor and
on the platform it runs on.
