it's not necessary (but is often the most flexible way.

<xsl:template match="foo">
   <xsl:if test="position()=1">
      <xsl:atribute name="class">some vale for 1st</xsl:attribute>
  <xsl:value-of seelct="whatever"

would also work, but if using position() like this, best to always use
an explict select on the apply-templates, as Michael showed, otherwise
position might not mean what you think it means 9in particular
position()=1 might be the indentation space before the first element.

A perhasp safer alternative, which wueries the position in the source
rather than the particular node set being operated on would be

<xsl:template match="foo">
   <xsl:if test="not(preceding-sibling::foo)">
      <xsl:atribute name="class">some vale for 1st</xsl:attribute>
