Sorry, I forgot to mention that the stub will not repeat any element at a
particular level.  (so, for example, <RelatedParty> will never be repeated
under <CustData>, but <FedId> can be used under both <CustData> and
<RelatedParty> )

Ah.  There's the issue.  I tried it earlier with:
   <xsl:apply-templates select="./node()">
     <xsl:with-param name="context" select="current()"/>

and some other similar methods.  For some reason I was working under the
impression that xsl:for-each only changed the current node and not the
context node.  That's what I get for starting to work on a problem at 8am
Monday morning with four hours of sleep under my belt (let's see how many
more excuses I can come up with... :).  At any rate, when I change the
xsl:for-each to look like this:
    <xsl:variable name="curr" select="."/>
    <xsl:for-each select="$context/child::*[name() = $currNodeName]">
        <xsl:apply-templates select="text()"/>
        <xsl:apply-templates select="$curr/node()">
          <xsl:with-param name="context" select="current()"/>

it of course works like a charm.  Thanks for the help, Jeni!
