I try to cache values who are in external files referenced from my

I want to create a map(xs:anyUri, xs:string), where key is the external
file URI, and value is always /*/@type in the file

If the files are huge but you only need the @type attribute of the root element then using `xsl:iterate` and `xsl:break` for an early exit, as described in http://saxonica.com/html/documentation/sourcedocs/streaming/partial-reading.html might be the best approach to avoid parsing the large documents.

External files may be huge, and I'd like to stream them. I create an accumulator, stream input files using this accumulator.

<xsl:accumulator name="acc" as="map(xs:string, xs:string)"
    <xsl:accumulator-rule match="*[@value]">
       <xsl:sequence select="map:put($value, ./local-name(),

Above you say map(xs:anyUri, xs:string) with the key being the file URI, so why is the accumulator map(xs:string, xs:string) and stores the local name and not the URI?

<xsl:mode name="m" streamable="yes"/>

<xsl:template match="/">
    <xsl:stream href="../../test/resources/entries.xml"
       <xsl:apply-templates mode="m"/>
    <!-- do here something that uses the accumulator -->

Where do you parse the referenced files?
