A stylesheet is an XML document so you can construct it as the result of an
XSLT transformation. Alternatively, you can use tools such as DOM and SAX to
manipulate it. For example, if what you want to do is to change a single
expression defined in a global <xsl:variable>, you can feed the stylesheet
to the XSLT processor via a SAX filter that changes the expression before
the XSLT processor sees it.

Correct. (And the API for invoking a processor via a SAX filter will vary
for each processor as well).

Another Saxon extension function: saxon:tokenize().
