Of course if I had written it like this with the variable local
instead of global I wouldn't be asking the question.

So I guess the question is whether the global version entails an extra
pass over the data or any other performance penalty.

   <xsl:output method="text"/>
   <xsl:key name="elems" match="*" use="name()"/>
   <xsl:key name="counts" match="*" use="count(key('elems',name()))"/>

   <xsl:template match="/">
      <xsl:variable name="all" as="xs:integer+">
         <xsl:apply-templates select="*"/>
      </xsl:variable>
      <xsl:sequence select="sum(key('counts',max($all))/count(@*))"/>
   </xsl:template>

   <xsl:template match="*">
      <xsl:sequence select="count(key('elems',name()))"/>
      <xsl:apply-templates/>
   </xsl:template>

   <xsl:template match="text()"/>


</xsl:stylesheet>
