It matters a great deal! Most XSLT processors (like Saxon) are limited in
the size of document they can handle by the available memory. For people who
want to handle more than 200Mb or so (and lots people do) an XSLT processor
that works directly on a disk-based source document would be a real boon. If
they don't have that capability, then frankly, there's not much point.
