I don't understand why that is necessary.

Just as XSL processors build a custom/smaller/faster DOM, an XML DB based processor could make use of its custom DOM.


Why not just specify a URI scheme for accessing your favourite database, and write a URI resolver for it that returns events that your XSLT processor can understand (e.g. for JAXP processors such as Saxon, generate SAX events)?

Then your favourite database will look like a native XML database to
the XSLT processor.
