Default JAXP without source document


I'm trying to do something like the -it parameter from Saxon via JAXP. That is using a stylesheet without a source XML file. The closest I get is to use a dummy source which only contains an empty element and then match on /. Any better ideas?

JAXP is aligned with XSLT 1.0, which requires a source document to exist. I often use the stylesheet as a dummy source document.
