I think, it's logical not to have type specification (with, as
attribute) on xsl:param instruction. We pass parameters to the
stylesheet from outside, and making the input environment XSLT/XPath
type aware doesn't appear logical to me.

As currently happening, whatever that is passed to the stylesheet to
xsl:param variables, can be casted in the stylesheet to an appropriate
type. I think, this is the correct design ...
