Ah, I was hoping that $id represents the name of only one element. No, you
can't do this, unless you avail yourself of a Saxon extension that allows you
to evaluate an XPath expression at runtime:

I am trying to allow the first document to supply a path to the second
document.  For example, all @menu elements from the first document have
an attribute @id.  That could be /complete/xpath/here.  So the concatenation
I'm looking for in that example is document('f1.xml')/complete/xpath/here,
does work when the xpath is not a variable.
