Er, what about the doctype-system or doctype-public attributes on
xsl:output? A bit limited (can't produce an internal DTD subset), but
still useful.

This doesn't seem reasonable because then you are putting a text node
before the document element, which would not be serializable as a
well-formed XML document, even though an XSLT processor may not complain
about it.

Or am I missing something?
