Firstly, this has nothing to do with the document() function really.

None of what you are trying will work - there is no syntax for doing this
because it cannot be done in XSLT+XPath. IOW, XSLT and XPath cannot macro
evaluate a string as an XPath expression.

However, some transformation engines do have extension functions that might
enable you to do this (e.g. the evaluate() extension function in some
engines) - but of course this makes the XSLT code less portable.
