Saxon doesn't (yet): I wanted to wait for XPointer to stabilise.

It's interesting to note that document() using a fragment identifier gives
you, in a rather roundabout way, the capability of saxon:evaluate(): that
is, the ability to locate nodes using an XPath expression constructed at
run-time or stored in the source document.
