XSLT spec uses the term top-level variable.

No.

If you have

<xsl:template match="foo">
  <xsl:variable name="bar" select="@baz" />
  ...
</xsl:template>

you can rewrite it to

<xsl:variable name="bar" select="foo/@baz" />
<xsl:template match="foo">
  ...
</xsl:template>

but without seeing your stylesheet it's hard to advice more.
