  Well it's clearly not XML. It's not xsltproc which fails but
the XML parser trying to load your input.

  Well it's not XML, you can't parse it with an XML parser.
I have no good idea about how to parse this, this is not XML
nor HTML, apparently Apache Server Side Includes are supposed 
to be processed before being passed to the XML or HTML parser,
so it seems unlikely you can find a good solution at the XML
level for what you want.
