In xslt2:

<xsl:variable name="bg_img" select="if(normalize-space($all_vars))
 then 'background_bright' else 'background_faded'"/>

That appears to be a misunderstanding. xsl:attribute does not have to be
the first element you just have to add attributes to the output before
child nodes, so you can have any number of vxsl;variable xsl:if etc
before the xsl:attribute or indeed the xsl:attribute can be in another
place altogether, and executed via call-template.
