To my understanding handling of xinclude and xpointer is more a matter of parsing (Xerces for example) than XSLT

So you can use the option -xi on Saxon Command line to active xinclude processing (which is handled by Xerces)

[[
-xi

Apply XInclude processing to all input XML documents (including schema and stylesheet modules as well as source documents). This currently only works when documents are parsed using the Xerces parser, which is the default in JDK 1.5 and later.
]]

And here you can find some information on handling of XPointer by Xerces
