The 'easy' solution would be for me to just store the unique ID stored
in the database for each node within the XML itself, but I was wondering
if there was a solution on the XSL side of things before I recreate the
XML files.

Just use generate-id() - it's guaranteed to return the same value for the same node for a single transformation run.

So when you pass over your data to create your index, and then when
you pass over it a second time to do the actual transform, as long as
its all done as part of a single transform you can use generate-id()
