First of all, it's a recursive template that reads XML files of various schemas, so to do this with key I need one key-set for each schema combination I want to handle. Given that the keys are defined in the root xsl element, I need to define about 10 different key-sets, and still have to switch between them. The only reason I (thought I) needed keys was because I wrongfully thought about using keys to group the contents into unique lists. I just stared at that solution so long so that I forgot to actually look elsewhere for a simpler solution, that's all.
