Take a look at Sock, at  This is a general
framework for writing code from XML documents, and already has a
solution for the problem you mention (its called a 'sorted sink').
There is an example of how to generate 'import' statements in Java
which seems to be the same kind of thing you describe.

Sock also solves a few problems you are likley to come across next -
XSLT in its raw form is not ideal for code generation.
