How about two out of three?
You can use XIncludes in xsltproc and Saxon, but not
DSSSL.  For Saxon, you need to use Xerces 2.5.0
or later, which can resolve whole-file XIncludes.


If you need to process with DSSSL, you could use
xmllint to preprocess the XIncludes, and process
the result with DSSSL tools.  It adds an extra
step, but that's what Makefiles are for.  8^)
