xsl:attribute creates an attribute in the result tree, not in the
stylesheet.

You want

<xsl:variable name="x" as="xs:string">
   <xsl:apply-templates.../>
</xsl:variable>
<xsl:result-document href="{x}"/>

Alternatively, encapsulate the call of apply-templates in a function, as
I suggested in my response.
