I suggest you take a look at the way SAXON does this. It has an xsl:output
element which specifies a new filename for output. Logically SAXON is
generating a single output tree and the xsl:output is perhaps best regarded
as a formatting object, it says I want this part of the output tree to be
serialised to this particular file. There's an example in the SAXON
distribution of how this is used to create a frameset-based rendition of the
New Testament in which every book and every chapter generates a distinct
HTML output file, all linked together with hyperlinks.
