If you're that worried about performance, and you are using MS XSLT, then I would recommend compiling your transforms into "processors" anyway.

Once you've done that all the parsing will be done at load-time (or wherever you put in the call) and the actual transformations will be substantially quicker.

Even if you're not compiling the transform, you could still pre-load it, which would also remove the parse task from the transform time.
