[xsl] Using document()

Sorry if this appears twice, I'm having some problems with my mail systems. 

I have a question. 
I want to use the following:
<xsl:apply-templates select="document('#id2')" /> 
Ok, I'd never actually use this. In reality its something like:
<xsl:apply-templates select="document(@xlink:href)" />
which is likely to contain simply fragment identifiers since I'm using XLinks to normalize a sitemap hierarchy. 
When I try to run this as part of a transform, I get an error saying that the file (fully resolved to refer to the source doc) cannot be found. Is this a problem with how I'm doing things or perhaps a problem with app I'm using to develop templates with (Stylus Studio)?
Do you have any other ideas about how I can accomplish the same thing given that some of my xlink:href attributes will point to external documents?
