I didn't follow all the logic here but it seems to be very complicated,
and attempting to duplicate much of the matching semantics within xslt.

If the requirement is "if foo.xsl and bar.xsl have templates that match
this node do what they specify else do ...) 

Then you can do that without any explict xsl:if testing, just have a top
level stylesheet that says

<xsl:import href="default.xsl"/>
<xsl:import href="foo.xsl"/>
<xsl:import href="bar.xsl"/>

where default.xsl has a template that matches the node and does ... it will
have lowest import precedence so only be invoked if no other template
