Is there a better way of writing this:

<xsl:variable name="input" as="document-node(schema-element(root))">
   <xsl:document validation="strict">
     <xsl:copy-of select="doc('file:///path/to/xml')"/>

I thought there might be a validation parameter to document(), so it
seems this is the only way to get a typed input when global input
validation is disabled ?

I can't think off-hand of another way to do this. There is only one argument to the doc() function, and only two for document() (the second determining the base-uri).

Using this approach one can take advantage of use-when="system-property('xsl:is-schema-aware')" and have another declaration that turns off validation.

I hope this helps.
