It means that you skipped or don't understand the discussion in the
sibling thread (wrt thread safety in reality, not nominally and
incorrectly). You won't be able to logically explain how it could
become thread safe when it comes to XslCompiledTransform.

For reference, we don't have true XslCompiledTransform. It's just
a wrapper of XslTransform.
