ah in an ideal world you would just change my template

<xsl:template  match="*[@lang='es-ES']"/>

to say

<xsl:template  match="*[not(@lang=$required-lang)]"/>

and pass required-lang="the queens english"
into the processor.
that would work in xslt2 drafts but unfortunately they banned the use of
variables on match patterns in xslt1 so you can't do that.

So you have to modify the main template not just add another, so now you
only need one template:

<xsl:template match="node()">
<xsl:if test="not(@lang) or (@lang=$required-lang)">
<xsl:copy-of select="@*/>
