Package: libxslt1.1
Version: 1.1.22-1
Severity: normal

Both Xalan and Saxon have a systemId function (in their respective 
namespaces) to provide the URI of the file that is being transformed.  
It would be nice to have that function in libxslt1.1 as well, because 
then DocBook could use it[0].

I would normally provide a patch, but I briefly looked at the code, and 
it seems non-trivial to fix without breaking the ABI. But I suppose 
you're more familiar with libxml2 and libxslt1.1 than I.

[0] See line 250 et seq in 
/usr/share/xml/docbook/stylesheet/nwalsh/common/stripns.xsl .
