The most often use of xsl:attribute in my XSLT code is like this:

<xsl:attribute name="attname">
	<xsl:value-of select="somenodevalue"/>

I am writing things like this for hundreds of times.
I hoped that XSLT 2.0 standard will make my work easier.
I would like to have an optional 'select' attribute for xsl:attribute element, wich works just like in xsl:variable, so I could write:

<xsl:attribute name="attname" select="somenodevalue"/>

That's one line instead of three.

I haven't seen anything like this in XSLT 2.0 Draft
Is there any reason why "select" attribute can't be added to xsl:attribute element?

Thank you.

Why don't you just write something like

<... attname="{somenodevalue}" />
