Have you tried testing namespace-uri() to see which namespace
each document's document element belongs to?

E.g. something like

  <xsl:variable name="doc1" select="document('doc1.xml')" />
  <xsl:variable name="doc2" select="document('doc2.xml')" />

  <xsl:template match="/">
    <xsl:for-each select="$doc1 | $doc2">
      <xsl:when test="namespace-uri(.) = 'http://people.file1'">
        <xsl:apply-templates select="." mode="mode1" />
        <xsl:apply-templates select="." mode="mode2" />
