Whether the absence of RTF type in XSLT impacts on performance
presumably depends on what you were doing to get round the restriction
in XSLT1. 

As I don't really like using extension elements (even x:node-set()) for
portability reasons, I routinely go

<xsl:variable name="x">


... select="document('')/*/xsl:variable[@name='x']/stuff/here" ..

which causes the entire stylesheet to be reparsed as an input document
and built as a node tree, just for me to extract this variable, not to
mention that on the original processing of the stylesheet the rtf
variable x was built never to be used at all.

I'm assuming that in XSLT2

 ... select="$x/stuff/here"

will be much more efficient.
