Exactly :-).

Yes, I see your point.  From a "document" perspective, push IS much simpler.
With web applications, I find myself dealing with XML messages (via SOAP,
Jabber, subroutines, etc) that are mainly packaged up information not really
a "document" in the traditional sense.

So I think we have discovered that depending on your application for XSLT,
different perspectives are useful.

This has been a great discussion for me.  I hope for others as well.
