Thanks Wendell (again!). A couple of minor things below:

I'll explain this more fully below, but the original (non-configurable)
version of the stylesheets had two modes that mods:mods was invoked in:
bibliography and citation.
Within those templates, there were two core modes: full and short.
Originally, I had carried the citation/bibliography thing through the
descendants, but that doesn't really make much sense when you consider
footnote citations are often full bib references. Hence, full and
short (for titles, names, etc.).
I tend to think this logic makes sense to keep.
That's the template where we'll jump trees, so --
<!-- of course the value 'book' should probably be parameterized
How and why? ;-)
Note: I do have a function (again, with Jeni's help) that determines
the type of mods record (book, etc.), but I've not thought about
whether and how to bring that over to the cs:* stuff. There the type
is just a straight attribute value.
<xsl:with-param name="source" select="."/>
<!-- this is where we jump to the other tree, carrying the original
context with us as the $source -->
Original context is mods:mods? I am jumping to the other tree with the
select statement on the apply-templates, and then jumping back to
mods:mods using the with-param select?
Also, a niggle: any particular reason why your configuration couldn't
<title font-style="italic" after=", "/>
thereby making it a bit tighter and easier to handle?
I simplified the config file a lot here to keep it as clear as
possible. The full structure would be schematically:
info (the metadata)
So, the business I'm dealing with here relates to just the last two,
and needs to happen in two respective modes: citation and
bibliography. All else are straightforward variables and parameters,
which I already have pretty well figured out.
