I'd be fine if just the XSLT can have Content-Encoding:gzip. I just
wrote a very large XSLT (it has long data tables to be joined with
the input, > 600K) and it compresses to about 20K, so if the service
does not cache the XSLT I wouldn't throw that much traffic at it;
with gzip support that'd be more reasonable.
