The source document would be exactly the way I posted it - out of my
control. E.g. it could be the result (simplified) of a web service which I
want to transform to an input for a different web service. That input
happens to use the same prefix with a different URI mapped to. So both
document formats are out of my control. So I wonder, whether I can
accomplish what I want in one step?
