I use this:
<!DOCTYPE style-sheet PUBLIC "-//James Clark//DTD DSSSL Style Sheet//EN" 
<!ENTITY intro    PUBLIC "-//MYSELF//DOCUMENT cover and intro//EN" CDATA DSSSL>
<!ENTITY layout   PUBLIC "-//MYSELF//DOCUMENT print layout//EN"    CDATA DSSSL>
<!ENTITY txtdef   PUBLIC "-//MYSELF//DOCUMENT text layout//EN"     CDATA DSSSL>
<!ENTITY page     PUBLIC "-//MYSELF//DOCUMENT page layout//EN"     CDATA DSSSL>
<!ENTITY colors   PUBLIC "-//MYSELF//DOCUMENT Colors for printed docs//EN"        CDATA DSSSL>
<!ENTITY NLS      PUBLIC "-//MYSELF//DOCUMENT NLS processing//EN"                 CDATA DSSSL>

<style-specification use="
;; Here my rules

<external-specification id="intro"      document="intro">
<external-specification id="txtdef"     document="txtdef">
<external-specification id="layout"     document="layout">
<external-specification id="page"       document="page">
<external-specification id="colors"     document="colors">
<external-specification id="NLS"        document="NLS">

The files, here referred to as PUBLIC, contain defines, which can be
shared this way.
I believe this is the canonical way to include defines and functions in
a stylesheet.
