You probably looked at the ones they deigned to include.  For some reason, 
they don't provide the test harness for independent verification of their 
*very* dubious 4XSLT results.

Their benchmarks are quite unprofessional, lacking, as they do, an exhaustive 
set of environmental, methodological and package information.

Doing benchmarks rightly is *very* hard business, and it looks as if Datapower 
didn't spend the time to get it right.
