This is a nice analysis to tell that one must never say never ;) .

Like Mike Kay reminded us a while ago, a case where xsl:for-each is real
nice and useful (even if its name is misleading there) is to change the
context node such as in:

<xsl:for-each select="document('doc.xml')>
  <xsl:apply-templates select="id($key)"/>

This can be done using a template, but it's much more verbose...
