So how can I pick a random member of that sequence of

need to replace the value of @href with that arbitrary actual file

One way to deal with the "recursive" call requirement of the random-number-generator function I have experimented with in XSLT 3 is to use an accumulator with the initial-value="random-number-generator(current-dateTime())" and an accumulator rule for the matching nodes to create new one e.g.

<xsl:accumulator-rule match="xref" select="$value?next()"/>

So perhaps you can adapt to get a new number based on the accumulator
attached random number generator of a matched node.
