'fraid so. The sad fact is, XSLT 1.0 doesn't allow you to create a pipeline
of transformations within a single stylesheet unless you use this extension.

Actually, Saxon 6.5.3 and one or two other processors implement the aborted
XSLT 1.1 spec which made xx:node-set() unnecessary. But your solution still
won't be portable. The closest you'll get to a portable 1.0-based solution
is exslt:node-set().
