Although the XSL WG hasn't discussed this issue as such, there was a
proposal[1] (on the ides of March) which asked for much the same thing that
you want. I think. It's framed as "syntax sugar", but it's obviously more
than that. Can you tell me how close this proposal is to what you're
proposing (modulo syntax)? (See below.)

The email is short so I include it below:

Subject: Proposed syntactic sugar: xsl:propagate-param

Recently, I have written a few stylesheets mostly consisting of
constructs like:

<xsl:template match="*" mode="xxx">
<xsl:param name="a"/>
<xsl:param name="b"/>
<xsl:param name="b"/>
<xsl:with-param name="a" select="$a"/>
<xsl:with-param name="b" select="$b"/>
<xsl:with-param name="c" select="$c"/>


I would find really useful if there was a way to propagate the params

<xsl:template match="*" mode="xxx">
  <xsl:with-param name="c">XXXXXXXX</xsl:with-param>

xsl:propagate-param would sent all params which given template accepted
to the template
specified by the xsl:apply-templates or xsl:call-template.

It would be possible to override some of the values with explicit

<firstName> Miloslav </firstName>
<surname>   Nic      </surname>
