it is unclear to me if
it needs to load the whole source document into memory before the process
can start.

It does. The very first template for the result node tree might need to access the very last node (in parse order) in the source node tree.

Not only do most processors load the entire document, but the internal format is invariably larger than the source document, often by a factor of 4 or 5.
