This isn't possible* in XSLT 1.0 without an extension function like
saxon:evaluate() or using msxsl:script in MSXML.

* Well, if the paths are simple, you can use things like "*[name() =
$path]" to select elements that are named in the path, and use
recursive functions to move along the string, but usually it ends up
being too complicated to be worthwhile.
