Surely the user will be unaware as to how the document is processed -
whether you apply a chain of transforms or a single transform that does
the work in the stylesheet, how will the user know?

On another point you were asking, recreating a transform chain in a
single stylesheet is very easy, much easier than writing the chain imho,
so you should have no problem there.

I remember someone posting the other day about the performance
difference between a chain and a single stylesheet, and found the chain
to be more efficient (I think, I cant find the post now).  I would say
though that for maintainability and as my personal preferance a single
stylesheet in the way to go.
