I *think* that XSLT messages should go on the error port. I don't think 
you can get at those messages (in order to save them to a file, say) 
unless the step actually fails (which it would do if xsl:message had 
terminate="yes", but not if it didn't).

Perhaps the document on the error output port gets put somewhere 
implementation-defined when the pipeline completes, if the pipeline 
hasn't failed.
