You more or less have to use a variable for that.

You could use document() with the URI of your original source document
but that would (I think) give you a new node set, not the original one.
Wwo calls to document() with the same URI are guaranteed to return th
esame node set (evn if that URI actually returns different entities at
different times) but that doesn't apply to the original source document 
and an `equivalent' document() call.

Why wouldn't you want to use a variable?
