I'd probably be willing to take an external XSLT file and do
substitutions on the fly. That way the external file can be edited

Including the XSLT e,g, inside a variable also requires namespace
mangling or wrapping or use of xsl:element and starts to require more
engineering than is appropriate, i agree.

The XSLT 3 course i run includes a section on the rhetoric of
stylesheets and on thinking about who will be working with the
stylesheets you write.
