If you look at what you are asking for in the most general case, I
believe the answer is not really: you want to to do generalized
merging of graphs (which is believed to be a NP complete problem).
If your domain is limited and common (eg. XHTML ) then you might get
lucky and find some existing tools. Otherwise, I think you've got a
good use case for rolling your own with XSLT...
