I think that the target audience of these methods are different.  For me, a weaved document is intended to be _documentation_ for other people to read, where the trace-target -- again for me -- is intended to be a debugging aid (since good debuggers do not exist for XSLT yet).

The overlap between these two is probably not very large.

These are still under development into a larger documentation system targetting towards a DocBook document, similar to the DocBook Guide.   His approach is basically based on top-level nodes.

I would still like to see a simulation of the output desired from a trace-run, since that will most likely clarify matters a lot.
