  No, _private is the dedicated place for this.
The fact that libxslt modifies the node has a simple rule:
   libxslt modifies the document it's being passed to be transformed
   if you want to transform a document you're using for other processing
   you must make a copy of it first and handle that copy to libxslt.
I'm not gonna add a new field for this reason.
