Ah yes, I'd forgotten that bug in JAXP that it failed to provide a way of supplying parameters to a transformer created in this way. Unfortunately the JDK has such strong backwards compatibility rules that they deem it impossible ever to add a new method to an existing interface, so such mistakes can never be corrected.
