In a template I want to change the context node to the first child.

That's not a work-around, that's just the way to do it using the "pull" approach.

This solution is ok, but if something like "xsl:with" or "xsl:context"
exists, I'd be glad to know.

Nope ... <xsl:for-each> is what you would use to change context. There shouldn't be multiple ways of doing the same thing (though I agree it is sometimes inevitable, but just because a word doesn't sound right shouldn't warrant the duplication).

I hope this helps.
