I am currently doing the exact same thing, and ran into the exact error.  The only fix that I could find was to put another layer into the mix.  I am doing everything via ASP, so I had a local XML file, and an XSLT file that would combine the XML, and various other sources VIA document().  to fix the problem, I cerated a local ASP file that I could request with my document() call.  This ASp file would go get teh XML file for me, and cache it.  whenever the "fetch" ASP file encountered an error, it would simply return the previous cached data to me.

This also allowed me to set expiration times for the remote XML files, and created a MUCH faster transformation.
