The difference(s) would be only cosmetic, but cosmetic differences 
can mean a lot to users.

Indeed: this is why XProc is among the possibilities I am 
considering. (Nor have I ruled out making them write XProc directly, 
as I'm doing in my proof of concept.)

As for 'eval', the question would be whether one can run a transform 
to generate a pipeline which is then provided as input to 'eval'. 
That looks like a normal enough pipeline, so the answer would appear 
to be yes, which is good news for me.

Cheers,
Wendell
