Correct. XSLT sees the document after expansion of all entity references.
The only clue that something was pulled in from an external entity is that
elements and processing instructions (but not text nodes and attributes)
have a property called "base URI": but even this cannot be accessed
directly, it is used only to resolve relative URIs when using the document()
