For what its worth, I've not used xslt specific test

transform and then use xpaths on the result (well, xquery).

Ever thought about using Schematron here Andrew?

  The fundamental difference is that Schematron is aimed at
representing assertions to be always true in all instance
documents but are not representable in a schema (like "there must
be as much children as the value of @count").  While unit tests
want to provide a specific input, to perform a specific treatment
on it, then to compare the result to a specific output or to
evaluate specific assertions on it (like "my:square(2) must be 4"
or "transforming <input><a/></input> must give something deep
equal to <result>...</result>").
