Re: What is passed between processes?

/ Jeni Tennison <> was heard to say:

To the extent possible, I'd like the exact representation passed
between processes to be an implementation detail. On the one hand, I
think we'll get a lot of pushback if an implmentation that passes SAX
events between components can't be conformant to our spec. On the
other, implementations built around XPath2/XSLT2/XQuery are obviously
going to want to pass XDM instances around and I want those to be
conformant too.
