<xsl:for-each> performs two functions: it iterates over a node-set, and it
changes the current node. It is often used (as in this example) for the
second purpose alone.

Parsing and loading 10000 documents is going to require a fast processor, a
large memory, and a lot of patience.

If you make several calls on document() with the same URI, the processor is
obliged to return the same document each time: in other words, it won't
reload it.
