mystery #2: testing document() without failure

testing document
The document() function will return a null node set if the referenced
file is not found, but with Xalan, a missing file will also leave an
error message in the system logs -- our application must test for
thousands of files every day, and if we log an error for every one not
found, the sysadmins will have us run out of town ;)

Is this the only way to verify the existance of a file before merging
it?  If it is, is there some way to tell Xalan not to log this error?
