/ Alessandro Vernet <avernet@orbeon.com> was heard to say:
| A static execution order, that can be determined just by "looking at a
| pipeline", makes the pipeline language simpler. This is good thing.
| However, it prevents an implementation from performing clever caching.
| In my experience, because of the use cases I am working with, caching
| is very important.

I don't see how the constraint that order be determined before
execution begins impacts caching. I'm not suggesting that the
components have to be bolted together so that each component is forced
to parse everything. I just don't want the engine to have to back
track to determine what component would need to be executed to create
something.

| I think that an implementation should be allowed to implement this
| type of behavior.

Me too.

                                          norm
