Either, but I meant the latter.

The normalization constraints apply only to actual XML documents used in
interchange.   What a program does internally to itself is not constrained.
It is up to the XSL WG whether to require normalization internally
(but I personally recommend against it); what matters is that when
you generate an XML 1.1 document, you ensure that it is normalized.
