.NET chose to call its version of the URIResolver an XmlResolver, so I
suspect the question relates to Java JAXP rather than .NET.

That only works if the XSLT processor chooses to take the (optional)
recovery action from the error that occurs when a document can't be found.
So this solution isn't portable.
