No; the ultimate source of the source tree might or might not be a file.
I don't think it would be a bad idea for XSLT to offer this information in
the form of a system-property() function result, though.
Best you can do for now is pass in the filename as an external parameter.
The mechanism for setting the parameter value is dependent on the XSLT
processor; check the docs. In the stylesheet at the top level (as a child
of xsl:stylesheet) you 'pull in' the parameter with <xsl:param .../>.
