[xsl] Determine last element before applu-templates

Is there a 'best practise' for determine how many elements are in a document.
My schema looks like this:
<xsd:element name = "onderwerpen">
<xsd:element ref = "onderwerp"/>
1 to many 'onderwerp' within 'onderwerpen'

My xslt looks like this:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform" version="1.0">
<xsl:template match="onderwerpen">
<xsl:apply-templates select="onderwerp">
<xsl:with-param name="last_element">3</xsl:with-param>

 <xsl:template match="onderwerp">
   <xsl:param name="last_element"/>
   <xsl:if test="position()=$last_element">
     <xsl:text>Something specific for last element</xsl:text>

The hard-code '3' should be determined before; based on the number of elements 'onderwerp'
Any suggestions how this is best handled?
