place it in a var, <xsl:variable name="test" select="document('b.xml')/*"/>
notice the '/*' xpath, this will be used to select whatever in b.xml.

then possible use $test with xsl:call-template and named templates, though
there are many techniques.

note that some parsers may be internally optimised to operate better in your
existing situation ( ie calling multiple times doc) but maybe an
implementator can comment.
