I might add,

Anyways, this is what I ended up with for a variable declaration:
<xsl:variable name="xmTmplt"

Its a bit messy, but it works (is this common?  maybe this isn't messy, but
is the most *complex* xpath expression I've written so far).

I've written much worse. So common ... no ... unheard-of ... not at all.

On the other hand, the expression above could be tightened to

$DOC_TEMPLATE_XML//DOC[@id=ancestor::*[last() - 1]/@id]

or even


if the ancestor you are interested in is the only ancestor with an @id (ancestor::*/@id collects @id attributes on all ancestors).
