That depens on what you mean by "know" and "before". It doesn't need to
be known before you compile the stylesheet, it does (like every aspect
of the result) need to be calculatable as some function of the input
before you start the transformation, but the explict number doesn't need
to appear anywhere.

You don't need to do that a variable holding a nodeset can, as its name
implies hold a set of more than one node, in particular it can hold any
(finite, positive) number of document nodes.
