 stability with variables

Using the variables inside xslt makes it more stable 
even if there is not well-formed xml. To be more specific,
in this case even if the data.xml is not well-formed.

Concider the following:
<a href="{$opendocument}{following-sibling::AttachID}">

Which uses variable opendocument, this variable 
is imported to the main xslt from commands.xsl.

<xsl:variable name="opendocument">  		
<xsl:value-of select="document('data.xml')/xslt/Open/command"/>

Which reads the final value form external xml file. In Xalan
you dont need to use xalan:evaluate() function. Why? I dont know.
But reality (tested) is that the data.xml file can contain
syntax errors and yet the program does not result internal server error.

Has anyone else faced similar situations?
