You are only talking of the time taken to execute

<xsl:value-of select="concat(
 substring($x,7,2),':', substring($x,5,2),':', substring($x,3,2))"/>

which isn't going to be very long, and may or may not be quicker than
going through the interface to extension functions in another language.
Also it's completely portable which a java extension won't be.

If your stylesheet is doing anything at all interesting the time taken
to do the interesting bits are likely to dwarf the time spent here
whatever method you use aren't they?
