I think that's not possible, because some of the filters (like
WordprocessorML) use XSLT 2.0, which is not supported by libxslt (wasn't
supported the last time I looked, at least). So either we throw
out (or rewrite to XSLT 1.0) all XSLT 2.0 filters and declare that we
only support XSLT 1.0 or we're stuck with saxon (and java).
