Per my last post, XSLT not only supports access to documents via the
document() function, but access to a collection of documents as one source
tree, which would provide new functionality over the document() function.
Note that this is symmetrical to what's provided in XQuery; in XQuery, you
can access documents via the document() function (which it silently borrows
from XSLT), and you can access documents via an "implicit root node".
