If your id attributes are  of type ID then you don't need
to explictly tokenize as the id() function is designed to work with
these space separated strings.

that's what modes are for, when you want to generate the links use
apply-templates mode="link"
and have mode="link" on the link making templates.

In other words, assuming you have id or type ID

<xsl:template match="para">
  <xsl:copy-of select="@id"/>
  <xsl:apply-templates select="id(@corresp)" mode="link"/>

<xsl:template match="para" mode="link">
 <a href="#{@id}">[xref to <xsl:value-of select="@id"/>]</a>
