Here's one way:

<xsl:template match="customer">
  <xsl:attribute name="age">unknown</xsl:attribute>
  <xsl:copy-of select="@age"/>

this relies on the fact that if you add two attributes with the same
name to
a result element, the last one wins.

A more conventional solution is

  <xsl:when test="@age"><xsl:copy-of select="@age"/></xsl:when>
  <xsl:otherwise><xsl:attribute name="age".....
