You can't use a VariableReference in a match pattern in xsl:template.  You
could, however, define myNodeSet and use it in a select expression:

<xsl:apply-templates select="$myNodeSet"/>

then you would need a set of templates matching the possible values of
$myNodeSet, then apply templates again using $myPath as you have here.
($myPath would either have to be defined globally or passed as a param.)

cheers,
