The element prototypes can be in the same document or different documents,
but for the purposes of the XSLT3 we are only concerned with merging the
external references, such that we have a fully dereferenced (i.e.
standalone) XML instance.

I already have code to pull in the external references (prototypes) and run
the XPath (via evaluate) on them. I've put all the code on GitHub to
hopefully make this easier to understand.

The code as it stands replaces the referring element with its prototype,
instead of merging it.

Are the elements like "Draw" and the prototypes they refer to in the same
XML document or in different ones?
