I can't tell specifically for libxslt, but AFAIK this is a design issue
with XSLT which is not "streamable" in that it requires some kind
representation of the input documents in memory to work.

You might be interested by STX [1], a project started a while ago to
define "Streaming Transformations for XML".

They have recently published a draft of their specification which is
considered to be quite stable, have a couple of reference
implementations and are looking for examples of "very large documents"
to test their concept...

Hope this helps.
