Well, Elliotte Harold makes a good point -- that you can't always depend on valid data, since other programs may go bad, there may be an attack, etc.  Validation is a part of the price we pay for reliability.

The XPath handled by Tarari is a bit limited -- the document sort of mentions that it may look for XPath true/false values if you want the best performance.  Nodes and strings may be slower.

It would be most interesting to compare Tarari against one of the high-performance XPath filters, like YFilter from Berkeley, XMLTK formerly from U Washington, or elsewhere.  Comparing it against Xalan is sort of a strawman unless it's a drop-in replacement for a JAXP parser; if there's special coding required, you may as well compare with one of the other special libraries out there.
