I think this is confusion on my part as to the way boostbook works.
Essentially, my stylesheet generates a HTML page for a chapter element.
Where I think I was getting confused was the xi:include stuff at the end.

What I should have said was that my stylesheet does not (yet :)) support
xi:include, unless this is supported by xsltproc. This is easy to do, using
something like:

<xsl:apply-templates select = "document(@xml)/section"/>

but requires a little extra work (with TOC and body separation).
