Not that I've setup XSLT, so take this with a pinch of salt:

I'm assuming in XSLT you can mix in arbitrary HTML into your output. So, instead of just linking to e.g. "readme.html", link to "/some/absolute/directory/readme.html". Then, you'll only need to store the readme.html in one place.

Perhaps you were saying you didn't want the readme link in each repository directory when browing? Hmm. I'm not sure how to do that... (Perhaps it's useful so people are more likely to see it) Perhaps you can have Apache run a filter over the result of the XSLT output, and perhaps generate a server-side include, which can be a CGI script, which can only output the readme text/link for the directory(ies) where you want it? Seems overkill, though...
