Generally, when using XSLT, you need to load the entire document into  
memory before applying transformations. I think at some point, you  
would encounter memory stress and possible system instability.

To avoid this you could use SAX, but it is a real pain to maintain  
processing state. Two recommendations I would make are: use eXist as  
an embedded database to store the XML document and then process the  
transformations, or use STX for transformations.

eXist: http://exist.sourceforge.net
STX: http://stx.sourceforge.net/documents
