We have a CMS with (in this case) over 5000 assets... Typical parsing
involves creating navigation, building photo gallery's and displaying
content from a single stylesheet with about 5 included stylesheets to do
specific tasks (navigation etc). 

We had a lot of performance issues using //asset[@id=$var] to reference
individual assets but supplying the entire path to the target group
/content/assets/group[@name='news']//asset[@id=$var] improved things a lot
(with help from this lists archive :) ).

We now cache entire pages for this client as they have experienced periods
of EXTREME load where page render times can grow to over 5 sec...
