In principle I am in favor of such an option (esp. since we already offer
optimistic streaming, though the option is not documented yet), but I'm also
hesitant, as I'd rather have the stylesheet as a whole be analyzed/processed as

I'd also favor any library package to have to be strict (for compatibility
reasons), but that may be both an unnecessary restriction and/or hard to define
in spec prose.

For consideration then, I would like to suggest
(xsl:package|xsl:stylesheet)/streamability-level = "strict | fallback |
optimistic", or something of that kind, which is easier to implement at this
stage than trying to define interactions of the several constructs if one is
strict and the other is optimistic. If library packages must be strict and
import precedence is not an issue (only the principle stylesheet module counts)
then I think this could work without being too much of a change, and it
relieves the stress of Rule 1: Raising a static error.

Since fallback and optimistic are implementation-defined, we could define this
such that only "strict" is required.
