You can use keys to do this, though it might not be the best solution
for big files.
Check the comments in the code

Stylesheet:
  <!-- set the key to look for the closest previous RI with @col=1 -->
  <xsl:key match="RI" name="RI" use="generate-id((preceding-sibling::RI
| self::RI)[@col=1][last()])"/>

  <xsl:template match="RS">
    <table>
      <!-- start only with RI the belong to the first column -->
      <xsl:apply-templates mode="start" select="RI[@col=1]"/>
    </table>
  </xsl:template>

  <xsl:template match="RI" mode="start">
    <!-- for each one create a row -->
    <tr>
      <!-- then select the nodes until the next RI[@col=1] -->
      <xsl:apply-templates select="key('RI',generate-id())"/>
    </tr>
  </xsl:template>

  <xsl:template match="RI">
    <!-- here you do whatever you want with the columns -->
    <td>
      <xsl:apply-templates/>
    </td>
  </xsl:template>
