Yes, it is possible. Of course, the details of what is accessible depend on
your processor and the environment it is running in (e.g. firewalls).

Also, there is a security issue that not many people seem to know about. If
the stylesheet contains calls to extension functions, it can do arbitrary
damage to your machine. So don't invoke a stylesheet unless you trust it.

Recent releases of Saxon include a switch to disable calling of extension
functions, for this reason.
