In case you are using XSLT 2.0, wouldn't <xsl:next-match> be useful?

>> apply-imports means "process the current node using the template that would
have matched if this one didn't". It's hard to see what that could mean when
processing a different node, i.e. one that doesn't necessarily match the
current template rule.

Truly great madness cannot be achieved without significant intelligence.
To invent, you need a good imagination and a pile of junk
Never fight an inanimate object
To avoid situations in which you might make mistakes may be the
biggest mistake of all
Quality means doing it right when no one is looking.
You've achieved success in your field when you don't know whether what
you're doing is work or play
To achieve the impossible dream, try going to sleep.
Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored.
