Of course I'm with Conor here 8-)

There are currently two classes that make bootstrap depend on TraX,
XMLCatalog and XSLTProcess - moving XMLCatalog to types.optional would
work, but XSLTProcess is harder to fix.

Note that we've carefully avoided all TraX dependencies in <style> by
inventing XSLTLogger instead of using ErrorLogger directly.  We are
not ready to give up the non-trax implementations for <style> yet, so
we better don't make <style> depend on it.

Taking reflection a step further will probably help 8-).

I'll look into this.
