In the current build, transformxmlspec.xsl explicitly removes any line matching "<?xml-stylesheet" from the generated xml file. We will need to change transformxmlspec.xsl to not remove that line.

Yes, I think so.  Since we publish the XML, it's good if it can be
viewed properly online, using the stylesheet. . .

I'm not sure I understand your publication tool chain.  Are you saying
that the XML I was working with was itself generated by a stylesheet
- From some _other_ XML?  There is no way to get XSLT to add
declarations to the internal subset, we'll have to continue doing that
by hand, as I did.  Not a big deal.
