For posterity:

    <xd:desc>process transformation events in list order with fetched params</xd:desc>
    <xd:param name="initial">the document we're going to transform</xd:param>
    <xd:param name="list">the list of transformation event names we need to process</xd:param>
    <xd:param name="results">the accumulating return values of the successive transform() calls</xd:param>
<xsl:function name="local:processList" as="map(*)">
  <xsl:param as="document-node()" name="initial" />
  <xsl:param as="xs:string*" name="list" />
  <xsl:param as="map(*)" name="results" />

    <xsl:when test="not(exists($list))">
      <!-- no more event names to process, so stop and return what we were called with -->
      <xsl:sequence select="map:merge((map:entry('processed',$initial),$results))" />
      <!-- we still have events to process -->
      <xsl:variable name="temp" as="map(*)" select="transform(
              map:entry('source-node', $initial))
      <!-- when we add this transform result, remove the output key because that will duplicate -->
      <xsl:sequence select="
          )" />

Not elegant, but functional.

I think it would be helpful for map:merge() to throw a warning if the
second argument doesn't contain any recognizable option names.
