A much as I have understood, this is not possible. Why? Because
stylesheets are applied by Xalan and they are not processed by Cocoon.
XSP, however, is a Cocoon thing and Xalan doesn't do anything with
cocoon specific processing instructions...

So you can use XSP only in the actual file requested because that is
processed by Cocoon.

I would also love to see the possibility to produce stylesheets with
