I don't understand why that is necessary.

Why not just specify a URI scheme for accessing your favourite
database, and write a URI resolver for it that returns events that
your XSLT processor can understand (e.g. for JAXP processors such as
Saxon, generate SAX events)?

Then your favourite database will look like a native XML database to
the XSLT processor.
