None of the 3 presented solutions give an automated method of pulling in
the 3 most recent items, unless you have the horrid solution of either
symlinks to the 3 most recent or renaming the recent files each time you
add more (so that you always have a 1.xml, 2.xml and 3.xml). That
obviously breaks links.

The other method of using an RDF file of the web site still leaves the
implementation of writing the RDF file when the web site changes, which is
not a problem solved by XSLT.

So I'm guessing the answer is simply: XSLT can't do this.
