You might find it easier to have more than one transform.

If you start by adding a parent-small-unit and parent-large-unit
attribute to each<l>  then the numbering might be a lot easier.

Indeed. Problems like this are simplified greatly (both for ourselves and for the poor machine) by breaking them out into pipelines.

You could do what Liam says, or you could add flags to (only) the ancestors within which you want the counts to be scoped, so xsl:number doesn't have to work so hard.
