It's quite likely that


is too much for browser base XSLT engine. However most of documents use
just small number of templates. So one of things you could do is either:

- strip down parts of stylesheets which are not necessary

- create some metastylesheets which will compose stylesheet on demand
based on elements used in your document

Also if there is some crash it would be nice to debug it in order to see
where the problem is.

I don't think that rewrite is good approach. I think that by stripping
down existing XSLT 2.0 stylesheets you should get workable solution.

You should do more investigations first. Are crashes caused by browser,
JS engine, Saxon-CE, ...? Are performance issues caused by size of
stylesheet or number of stylesheet modules that are loaded? You need to
know where the bottleneck is before you will try to remove it.
