<xsl:apply-templates select="$other-tree"/>

makes it pretty simple to work on other hierarchies. Right? Maybe not, 
because switching context nodes confuses some users, but once it is 
understood it is not that bad.

Now you might be saying that is limited to what is in the file, but it 
is not so. You can use a custom URIResolver (java) to catch the href and 
  return whatever you need. (among other things I return lucene search 
results this way).
