[xsl] copying attributes to all child nodes

I'm puzzling over a problem at the moment that has me stumped. I'm trying to figure out a way to select a node based on an attribute, then copy that attribute to all children of the node i.e.

Sample XML

<top.level.node attributeX="123456">
        <next element attributeXYZ="654321">
                <next2element> this is some text</next2element>
                <next2element> this is some more text </next2element>

which I need to convert to

<top.level.node attributeX="123456">
<next element attributeXYZ="654321" attributeX="123456">
<next2element attributeX="123456"> this is some text</next2element>
<next2element attributeX="123456"> this is some more text </next2element>

I have searched the FAQ, and the list archives, but I cant seem to find a suitable way of doing it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
