Yes, this could be done. However, realize that an XSLT processor is 
optimized for template processing, and an XQuery processor will not be. I 
am not aware of existing systems that are well optimized for both - do you 
know of any?

I would like to avoid pushing XQuery too far out on the "future research" 
edge. I want it to be efficiently implementable as soon as possible.
