This question is very Saxon-specific, so it would be better asked on the
saxon-help list (or forum) at SourceForge.
I think Kernow had the same problem, it may be worth looking at the source
code to see how Andrew Welch solved it.
The most straightforward and portable solution is to query the source
stylesheet: this is one of the delights of XSLT being an XML-based language.
I suspect the information is available from the compiled stylesheet, but you
would certainly have to dig very deep into internal Saxon interfaces.
