OK so I'm completely confused as to the goals!!!

      Outline: Design goals.

	 To be able to extract stylesheet documentation
	 readily from within a stylesheet.

	To be able to use the stylesheet without the documentation
	'getting in the way'.

I thought that this was describing a "weave" system that would extract
documentation from a documented source file.

Ie would, in this case, presumably be an XSL stylesheet that takes (just)
the stylesheet being documented as input, and outputs a documented
version of the stylesheet (eg as an html file with lots of links between
the code and documentation)

but starting from that point you then sketched out a process using
xsl:message or extensions to xt:document/saxon:output that would
document/trace the run of the stylesheet when processing a particular
input file.

Both sorts of information are useful, but they are quite distinct
processes aren't they?
