Been playing a bit with Saxon and its partial implementation of the XSLT
1.1 draft.  here. I've been wondering if there is a way for multiple
<xsl:document/> constructions that reference the same file to *append*
their outputs to the file instead of truncating the original file and
replacing its contents.  Useful for the case where I had two different
templates that had to spew their output to the same file, in the order
they were matched.  Is there something in the standard I missed, or is
this currently impossible and I would need to hack my XSLT processor and
then propose to the W3C a mode attribute to <xsl:document/> that would
control whether output to files that already exist should be appended or
