These are all issues with 1.0 transforms - I'm suggesting Oracle's 1.0
processor isn't conformant by a long way.  So far in fact, that it
must be something I'm doing wrong.

Sure, but not all projects are greenfield projects... sometimes you
just have to work with what's there.  I didn't even know an Oracle
processor existed until a few weeks ago (!) and it would be good to
know where it sits amongst the other processors.

Yes - oXygen is great.  Jumping around variable and template
declarations and references (ctrl -> shft -> d and ctrl -> shft -> r)
is almost as good as ctrl -> clicking around in Java...
