    <xsl:for-each select="//section">

note that is very costly it causes the system to searth the entire
depth of the document looking for sections, if you know all the sections
are at the same level much better to not use //, or more simply just let
the  templates application mechanism take you to the sections, and don't
use for-each here at all.

     <xsl:with-param name="sectNum"><xsl:value-of select="$sectNum" />
so your outer variable isn't doing anything, you coul have use
position() here.

   <xsl:with-param name="sectNum"><xsl:value-of
select="$sectNum" /></xsl:with-param>

That passes the string value of the number, you could have passed the number as

   <xsl:with-param name="sectNum" select="$sectNum" />

but if you will ever need anything other than the number in the
templates, you may as well pass the node itself, then you can
get all information

  <xsl:with-param name="section" select="." />


see, then instead of doing:
  <xsl:apply-templates
select="$sourcefile/source/body/section[position()=$sectNum]/title" />
you could do

  <xsl:apply-templates select="$section/title" />
