Assuming that the work would be done at the server, you could create a
second xml file that contains a list of the nodes to expand, and use
document() to give the stylesheet access to it.  Whenever a node is
identified as one from the list, the stylesheet indicates it should be
expanded.  You could use a key to make this quick and easy.

Another approach is to expand the menus using javascript, and use the
list of nodes to write a bit of javascript to do it.  You could pass the
nodes for expansion as a javascript array or associative array.
