Just curious: does using an XPath that "looks ahead" really not work, or 
does it just prevent streaming behavior? I would have thought that if 
someone was building a streaming transform system they would produce output 
when possible given the input received so far, and in other cases wait 
until sufficient input is buffered. Is IE doing something else?

Thank you.
