having the ability to _set_ the flags as in strip-space causes problems
with re-using trees, but it might (possibly) be useful to get
read-access to these flags.

In XSLT 1 there's some words to the effect that comments in the source
might or might not be visible to the stylesheet depending on whether
the xml parser passes them on. It might be interesting to know whather
or not they have been passed on (also it would be interesting to know
whether id attributes have been read)
