It's because 'normally' the stylesheet isn't responsible for writing
the output to disk, the xsl:output values are only hints to the
processor... so there isn't a way to discover the output filepath.

You can however take control of the serialisation yourself within the
transform by using xsl:result-document, something like:

<xsl:template match="/">
  <xsl:result-document href="$some-path">

that way you know the output path.
