You mean you use d-o-e to issue a close tag and an open tag to start the
next column?

The XSLT way would be to first select the nodes for the first column and
generate that, then select the nodes for building the second column,
sosomething like

<xsl:apply-templates select="id($breakpoint)/preceding-sibling::*"/>
<xsl:apply-templates select="id($breakpoint)|id($breakpoint)/following-sibling::*"/>

Nathan can tell us if it's this simple, which would be nice.

On the other hand, if it isn't (maybe not all the elements are at the same level), then methinks tag-writing would be quite dangerous too....
