you can't have a single key lookup that covers more than one document.
xsl:key applies to all documents but each is indexed separately and
key() just returns nodes from the current document.

so you need to go
<xsl:for-each select="some path that selects at least one node from each
document">
 ... select="key(...

Often this isn't quite the semantic that you want, but it's the semantic
that you get:-)
