Amended by comments so far:

Phase 0, XML parse of stylesheet and input document:
   Expand  character references and parsed entities;
   Determine source doc encoding.
   Normalize newlines.
   Normalize whitespace.
   Replace CDATA sections with characters.
   Validate (if using a validating parser with validation switched on)
      Populate defaulted values if using DTD/XML Schema. 
      Identify any nodes with ID values.
   URI  resolution (E.g.  Catalog management)
   Build the internal model of the stylesheet
       (including URI resolution if needed) by parsing the stylesheet
       including any included or imported stylesheets.
   Build the internal model of the source document (if present)
      Action document properties such as xml:space, xml:base etc

Phase 1, XSLT transformation.
   Apply the stylesheet to the input document (if present) (Colin)
       URI and entity resolution for any doc() and document() calls 
       from the stylesheet. (Colin)
       Parse additional entities such as the result of document() calls,
   Build the output tree.

Phase 2, Output | Serialisation
   From the output tree, produce the output document
   Apply applicable document properties such as xml:space
   Apply appropriate character encodings
   Apply any character maps (XSLT 2.0)
   This could be
     DOM Document or 
     SAX stream or
     Serialised to a Disk file  (Jarno)
