xsl-fo and multiple source files?

    I have a giant xsl-fo document that I am running though Apache FOP to
    generate a pdf. I would like to break this xsl-fo file into smaller, more
    manageable pieces, but have those pieces get pulled into a single pdf. For
    example, I would like each chapter of my pdf to be a separate fo file. I
    am thinking of an xsl-fo version of a server-side include.

    I cannot figure out how, or if it is even possible. Buying a commericial
    product is not an option. I am hoping to stay with FOP, but can switch to
    another product if it is free and open. Any suggestions? Thank you.

    Would the xslt document() function solve your problem?

    It does. But does xsl-fo itself support any type of linking, or is it a
    strict 1-input to 1-output thing? Thanks!
