so, something like

  <xsl:variable name="x">
    <xsl:number level="any" count="xxxx"/>
  <prov id="...{$x}">

where the count expression selects whatever it is that is being counted
by the id scheme it selects in the input tree but the output is usually 
expressable as a function of the input.

If you'd really rather count on the output then it would be simpler to
do it in two passes.

First save the output into a variable in which you have the desired
output except for id="?" then use a node-set extension function 
to apply an identity transform together with the extra rule

<xsl:template match="*[@id='?@']">
  <xsl:copy-of select="@*"/>
  <xsl:attribute name="id">
   ....<xsl:number level="any" count="*[@id="'?']"/>
