Using <xsl:apply-imports> works nicely, but you say you can only use one
stylesheet [module]. I wonder why you have that restriction?

An alternative is to use modes:

<xsl:template match="element1 | element2 | ...">
  process the attribute
  <xsl:apply-templates select="." mode="x"/>
</xsl:template>

<xsl:template match="element1" mode="x">
etc...
