If the glue for your series of XSL transformation was a general-purpose language like Perl (only XSL 1.0, unfortunately) or Java or some .NET language, there'd be no latency in the sense of process creation overhead.

As for failure to copy, if the disk is full, it is full - regardless of
platform chosen.

Surely the mere fact that results-document exists in XSLT suggests
some elementary file processing may be required.

I think this is mainly intended for generating multiple output documents, like document() and collection() serve you when you have multiple input documents.
