No - you have to use eXist's query engine to benefit from the
database.  Using Saxon as the query engine and talking to eXist
through its rest interface effectively just treats as a filestore
(unless you're calling an xquery to return you some nodes, but there's
not much point in using Saxon and eXist in that case??)

Is that what you meant?
