It helps to think about these problems if you understand the processing
model. <xsl:for-each> isn't a loop: it's a function mapping. It says that in
the output you want one Y for every X that appears in the input. Since it's
not a loop, jumping out of it doesn't make sense. What you need is a
different function.

I can't answer your problem without understanding your requirement better,
but it looks to me as if you want two <xsl:for-each> instructions:

<xsl:for-each select="one set of nodes">...</xsl:for-each>
<xsl:for-each select="another set of nodes">...</xsl:for-each>
