In XSLT 2.0, the xsl:analyze-string instruction meets your needs.

We limited the functionality available in XPath and XQuery to what could be
achieved with a simple function call; the XQuery WG felt that this level of
capability would be sufficient for release 1. The XSL WG however decided to add
some custom syntax (and an extension to the dynamic context) to handle more
complex use cases: these require either custom syntax, or new facilities such
as higher-order functions or nested sequences (both of which are under
consideration for a future version of the language).

I hope the XSLT 2.0 facility will meet your needs for the time being. We're not
accepting any new requirements for the current round of specifications, but
we've already started formulating a requirements list for the next round.
