Perhaps you can have your server setup such that ahead-of-time (before the XSLT) you can associate particular states (like a specific query + connection string) with specific URLs. Then, from within the XSLT, GET the resulting URLs...

I want to use POST in a idempotent (how like that word!) way, thus i
have no side-efects here. The problem is i probably will have lots of
data to pass, longer than can fit in a URL. Specifically to my
problem, i want to pass SQL SELECT clauses tha can be somewhat big,
and also connection strings.

Can there be a simpler solution?

Can i use the same construct for a POST method?

You would have to use an extension function, but even then doing an
operation like POST from a side effect free language like XSLT is
slightly problematic.
