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.

And if you only have one branch to expand at a time, you can adapt a technique I demonstrated a couple of weeks ago (see passing in a single unique ID as the parameter value (it can be constructed on the fly if necessary).
