So it sounds like you can't or don't want to modify those stylesheets.

Are you able to start from an initial named template rather than matching
on '/' in your initial stylesheet?  If so, and if there's no template for
'/', then you can just use xsl:apply-templates.

If you were able to match on the document element instead of the document
node, you could potentially do the same.

If your source XML uses a different document element name from the
documents in the collection, then you could use a more specific match
pattern, e.g., '/name-of-source-document-element' and use
xsl:apply-templates to process the documents in the collection.
