I find this discussion very confusing. An SQL query returns data in memory
accessible using a particular API - the details depend on what API you are
using, e.g. ODBC, JDBC, ADO, etc. An XSLT transformation returns a tree
structure in memory - again the details depend on your environment, but
there are various standards for accessing the data such as DOM and SAX which
most products support, plus the additional option, which is not available in
the SQL case, of a standardised serial file format, i.e. an XML document.

What's the big difference?
