  <xsl:param name="data" select="self::node()[false()]"/>

  could be doing; is supposed to do; does it make any sense?

it is declaring the parameter and giving it a default value of an empty
node set. Yes it does make sense, I usually usse "/.." for that but 
the above would do.

If you expect a param to be passed in as a node set then if you leave
thedefault being 
 <xsl:param name="data" />
it will be an empty string and things like
would be a type error.

However if you make the default an empty node set then these expressions
are legal but select nothing, which may be what is required.
