I don't know why because this has been asked before.
However you could have looked in the spec

NO! From the spec

xsl:param is allowed as a child at the beginning of an xsl:template element.
In this context, the binding is visible for all following siblings and their
descendants. Note that the binding is not visible for the xsl:param element

><xsl:template name="AddGoButtons">

or change it to

<xsl:template name="AddGoButtons">
	<xsl:param name="Action" />
	<xsl:param name="Color" />
	<xsl:param name="Name" />
	<xsl:param name="name" select="substring-before($Name, "'")" />
