Re:  starts-with on more than one item
glad you got it working, just one comment,

	<xsl:when test="position()=last()">
		<xsl:value-of select="concat(', and ', ., '.')"/>
	<xsl:when test="position()=1">
		<xsl:value-of select="concat(' ', .)"/>
		<xsl:value-of select="concat(', ', .)"/>

swap the first two when clauses, otherwise you'll get an ", and" on a list
of length 1.

If it wasn't for the and you could replace the whole for-each by

<xsl:value-of select="$names" separator=", "/>

It's probably possible to use a trick xpath to get the same effect with
a single value-of, but it's probably more maintainable to use the
for-each form that you have in this case.
