  Hum, no, there is no such extension at the moment. It seems the best
way would be to define an extension function in the libxslt namespace:
like document() but called htmldocument() and using the HTML parser.
Does any other XSLT parser provide something similar, it would be best
to try to reuse the same names if possible.
