I think these optimizations can be achieved without imposing
restrictions on the user. Saxon 7.8 already does better than 6 in this
area (though this is masked by slower performance elsewhere). I think a
lot of the reason that xt is so fast is because it's very slick at
building trees. Many more improvements are possible given the time and

Incidentally, final result trees and RTFs are quite different. Final
result trees never actually exist in memory, nodes are serialized as
they are constructed.
