Not in standard XSLT, but the Saxon extension function saxon:evaluate() does

Is there a way in XSL to take an XPath query described in a parameter or
variable, and reference this parameter in the select attribute of say,
xsl:for-each to iterate through the node set described by the query. 


<xsl:variable name="myPath" select="'/my/XPath/@query'"/> 
<xsl:for-each select="{$myPath}"> 

We were under the impression that using the curly braces might achieve this,
but haven't had any luck so far.
