OK, going back to this:

I'd really like to make the stylesheet configurable via an XML style

So a layout for a book might look like (there'd also be other stuff
that defines how to format names, lists of terms to use for thing like
editors, and media, etc.):

	<reftype name="book">
	  <date before=" (" after=") ">
	  <title font-shape="italic" after=", "/>

I decided to make things simpler and just make the stylesheet configurable internally, and then maybe later I can worry about reading an external (XML) configuration file.

Does the below seem like the right approach?  And conceptually how do I
think about reading a non-xsl file and getting the xslt to apply the
below logic?

<!-- begin configuration options -->

biborder template called by main bib template to determine order of
Note: this of course leaves the author-year ordering fixed; not a
problem now, but would be
if I want to allow greater configuration options.

<xsl:template name="biborder">
  <xsl:apply-templates select="mods:titleInfo"/>
  <xsl:apply-templates select="mods:originInfo"/>
  <xsl:apply-templates select="mods:relatedItem"/>
  <xsl:apply-templates select="mods:location"/>

<!-- punctuation variables -->

<xsl:variable name="title-before">

<xsl:variable name="title-after">
  <xsl:text> </xsl:text>

<xsl:variable name="year-before">

<xsl:variable name="year-after">
  <xsl:text>) </xsl:text>
<xsl:variable name="creator-before">

<xsl:variable name="creator-after">
  <xsl:text> </xsl:text>

.... etc.
