They are the one xslt feature, that despite a decade of daily xslt use, I
don't think I have ever used:-)

what do you mean by "share" here (call them from two different places,
by call-template or apply-tempates?)
Personally I'd lose the inflexible attribute set syntax and replace it
by a variable (or named template if you need to be more dynamic)
then instead of
which has the advantage that you can wrap the call-template in
conditional code, or parameterise it, or make its result depend on the
current context, as required.
