Passing a variable to p:document href?

If I want to pass a value in when calling an XPROC script that will be the
filename/URI for the document element, is there a way I can do this.

I was looking for the p:with-option but that doesn't exist and it doesn't
look like variable expansion is occurring. I get this error:

"err:XD0011 : Could not read: $Makexsltfile It is a dynamic error if the
resource referenced by a p:document element does not exist, cannot be
accessed, or is not a well-formed XML document.

I have this:

        <p:with-option name="Makexsltfile" select="$Makexsltfile"/>

Defined as:

    <p:declare-step type="l:flatten-map">
        <p:option name="Makexsltfile" required="true"/>

        <p:input port="source"/>
        <p:output port="result"/>

        <!-- Process the DITAMAP file source to travel all the included
maps and topics with stylesheet to flatten the structure and
gather information for later processing. -->
        <p:xslt name="flatten-map">
            <p:input port="source"/>
            <p:input port="stylesheet">
                <p:document href="$Makexsltfile"
            <p:input port="parameters">


I don't really want to include the XSLT in my XPROC as that makes it hard
to develop the stylesheet as well as it is long enough that I don't want
it to confuse the situation. But at the moment it seems to be the only way
around this problem.
