In XSLT1 that is about the best you can do, this is made simpler in
XPath/XSLT2 drafts, where you can use the key() function after
a step in an Xpath so instead of

 <xsl:for-each select="$desc">
      <xsl:copy-of select="key('

you'll be able to do
 <xsl:copy-of select="document(...)/key(..."

Note however that:
>

> omit-xml-declaration="yes" indent="yes"/>

has incompatible options: you can't have latin1 output and omit the xml
declaration (otherwise the result would not be well formed XML.
The XSLt engine will be forced to ignore omit-xml-declaration="yes"
here.
