What you describe is not a sequence of random numbers; a rule such as
"no duplicates" contradicts most definitions of "randomness". What you
request is better described as "a random permutation of numbers". This could
be produced by random draws from a set of numbers (without returning)
provided that you can, somehow, define this set. Can you?

I regret that I'm not experienced enough to propose an XSLT solution
for such an algorithm.
