I just remembered that this case is discussed in the spec,
to some extent, in the section on Transformation Algorithms:

"As noted above, each GRDDL transformation specifies a transformation
property, a function from XPath document nodes to ... RDF graphs.
This function need not be total; it may have a domain smaller than all
XML document nodes. For example, use of xsl:message with terminate="yes"
may be used to signal that the input is outside the domain of the
