Usually (or at least often) you can express the condition in xpath rather than xsl:choose, and so still use the select.

no, you misunderstand how the node-set extension is implemented.
You do not download any code it is built in to to the processor
xslt 1 implementations which support this (which is almost all of them)
build in the node-set extension, you just need to declare the namespace to access the function.

However, I have just managed to get what I need working using the inherent, xalan:nodeset() which comes bundled with the Xalan-C processor.

xalan:nodeset and exslt;node-set will be teh same function, it's just more portanble to call it exslt node-set.
