 Passing an XML fragment as a parameter

I need to create a transform for our engineers to pass an XML fragment stored
in a SQL database into a document as a parameter. Testing this in Oxygen using
XSLT 3.0 and Saxon is super easy. I can just declare the parameter
and then use the function fn:parse-xml-fragment:

    <xsl:template match="article-meta/abstract">
        <xsl:copy-of select="fn:parse-xml-fragment($NewAbstract)"/>

Unfortunately, the transform has to work in an environment limited to XSLT 2.0
(XMLPrime). Without the function, the angle brackets are interpreted as
greater and less than entities. (Various semi-embarrassing experiments I've
done to try to force the issue get the processor to complain that value of the
parameter is xs:untypedAtomic.)

I'm guessing this could be solved by saving the XML fragment as a document,
but is there a way to do it from memory?
