Re:  mode

Although I'm afraid that I don't understand your question fully, I'm trying to guess or give some hints below.

In my view, there's nothing to say against mode="#all".

<xsl:stylesheet version="2.0" xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform" xpath-default-namespace="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">


   <xsl:template match="para" mode="#all">

Be aware: this is tantamount to <xsl:apply-templates mode="#default"/>, which means that no matter what the mode was before, the contents of each and every para element will be processed in default mode.

So if
a) you switched to mode="super" before processing para, and
b) if paras should be processed identically, independent of mode, and
c) if paras' contents should be treated differently, depending on mode,

then you should make above apply-templates directive operate in the #current mode. And then you'll be able to invoke mode-specific templates for some of the downstream elements.
