I've been following your discusiion with Michael here -- I'm curious if you have any examples where RTF's in 1.0 are much faster than
the corresponding behavior in 2.0? It doesn't seem intuitive to me.

My impression is that restrictions imposed by RTF could be used to
implement RTF generation more efficiently than node-sets.

Since many stylesheets just generate result tree in one pass and
do not convert them into node-sets (in XSLT 1.0), a good implementation
could implement RTF in a much more efficent way than node-set.
