I'd have written it as a function rather than template, but the main issue is
you want your parameter to be (always) a sequence of elements not sometimes a
sequence of elements and sometimes a document node with a sequence of child
elements.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

        <regex><find>b</find><change>y</change></regex>
        <regex><find>c</find><change>z</change></regex>
    </xsl:param>

    <xsl:template match="/">
