Why don't you simply use something like

     --stringparam fileparam "$(cat test.txt)"

What if the text is too long for the command line?

I'd argue that xsl:param wasn't meant to handle multi-KB strings.

Moreover, $() is lossy as it strips the trailing \n characters.

Not if $() is inside double quotes which prevent Field Splitting.

The best solution is probably to implement an extension function similar to `unparsed-text` from XSLT 2.0.
