You're basically using the FXSL technique where you use an element as a
representative or surrogate for a named template or function, and then you
dynamically call a named template or function by applying templates to that
element. There is no need for the element in question to be an xsl:template
element in a stylesheet, it can be any element anywhere. Take a look at the
FXSL library to see how it is done there.
