I use Perl a lot to create xml out of flat files when each row can create a part of the tree with no dependencies on what came before or after.  Generally this data comes from a relational database...

Besides, if input is text, not xml, why even bother
with xslt in the first place?
If you have to parse/splice textual content and
produce xml output, it's likely to be rather simple to
use any old xml writers for the output side. The
result could be done as multiple smaller files, or as
one huge file, depending on who has to process them
next.
