There's no inheritance between nested xsl:result-document instructions in
2.0, but an analagous problem occurs if you have a named output definition
(xsl:output name="x") and reference this from xsl:result-document; you can
then override most of the serialization attributes in the
xsl:result-document instruction, but you can't reset doctype-system and
doctype-public to "absent".
