I'd like to resist to this approach. The main problems are:

* It's an odd thing to see developer-level data (how to initialize a
module) on the user-level (XSLT stylesheet).

* Stylesheet is polluted by a processor-specific spots. If I have my
extension module for xsltproc, xalan, saxon, I'm not happy to add
meta instructions for each of them.

Probably the best place to inform xsltproc about how to initialize
an module is the module itself.
