I suppose the version is unkown at compile time ...

If you know the version this might work:
<xsl:template
match="spec_off/offer[./@*[local-name()='version1']='true']">...</xsl:te
mplate>

<xsl:template
match="spec_off/offer[./@*[local-name()='version2']='true']">...</xsl:te
mplate>

etc.

It's not possible to have variable references in match patterns.
You can probably avoid them by doing the test when you call the
template,
rather than in the match pattern.

e.g.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0"
xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform">

<xsl:variable name="version">CO</xsl:variable>

<xsl:template match="spec_off">
<xsl:apply-templates select="*[@*[local-name()=$version]='true']"/>
</xsl:template>

<xsl:template match="spec_off/*">
<xsl:text/>I'm an '<xsl:value-of select="local-name()"/>' node with a
true
'<xsl:value-of select="$version"/>' attribute.
</xsl:template>

</xsl:stylesheet>
