Yes. The document() function treats its first argument as an URI, and an
URI is defined to use forward slashes.

Also note that f:/somedir/file.xml isn't an URI referencing the file
file.xml in the directory somedir in the F: hard-disk of the local machine.
This file's URI is file:///f:/somedir/file.xml
f:/somedir/file.xml is an URI with a scheme-part equal to f and a path-part
equal to /somedir/file.xml.
