The document order from document A is sufficient.  This document is actually
generated from a database using a sort order as specified by various
database elements.  Thinking about this last night I realized that I should
always be able to use the current node as the context node and check if the
next element in document A exists in document B or not and if not, call some
template to generate it.  I'll hopefully be able to have a go at generating
the code this afternoon, but I somehow suspect I'll be posting about this
