If the fragment identifier were passed to the URIResolver, then the
URIResolver could do this. What it could not do, at all easily, would be
to ensure that




returned two nodes in the same tree. This is because there is no way of
knowing whether the XSLT processor will use a DOMSource "in situ", or
copy it. In the case of Saxon, and I suspect other processors too, the
decision whether to copy depends on what DOM implementation you are
