Re:  Generating attributes from the position of an elem
I would have done this as following,

<xsl:template match="node() | @*">
      <xsl:apply-templates select="node() | @*" />

<xsl:template match="@ID">
   <xsl:attribute name="Id">
      <xsl:value-of select="count(../preceding-sibling::w) + 1" />

PS: this is not tested.
