So basically I have to put a string-encoded XML structure inside another XML. While I'm sure this is theoretically possible by just using <xsl:text>, this does not seem like a sustainable way of working with long and deep structures.

Is this possible without resorting to 'heavier' programming solutions?

Evan Lenz has a quite sophisticated XSLT 1.0 stylesheet to "serialize" XML to a string

If XSLT 2.0 or 3.0 can offer a solution I'd also like to hear.

In XPath 2.0 you can use

     <xsl:value-of select="unparsed-text('foo.xml')"/>

or in XPath 3 the serialize function that Mike has already posted.
