You example should work. Does it work if you do:

<xsl:variable name="current_name" select="@name"/>

but this is very inefficient if you have a large schema with many define's.

This is wrong. An RNG 'define' will not be in the context node.

not understanding... ancestors are not in the context node.

You don't want to live with that :). I believe what you want is what I provided.
Let me know (offlist if you want) what did not make sense. I copied the examples
out of context with your examples so i can see how they might be confusing.
