Note that Liam wrote "using explicit typing on variables". As I read it, he
claims that XSLT 2.0 can be executed more efficiently than XSLT 1.0 when
the XSLT code is statically typed using XML Schema, likely because runtime
optimisation of untyped XSLT code may not be sufficient (or implemented
well enough, or available at all, or whatever). Sounds more like a tooling
problem to me.

Personally, I find a processor for XSLT 1.0 plus the usual extensions (and
easy extensibility from user code) much more appealing than one for XSLT
2.0 that includes all that XML Schema cruft. But maybe that's just me.
