If by "match statements" you mean XSLT patterns (the value of 'match'
attributes in xsl:template elements) and by "writes to the stylesheet" you
mean passes a top-level parameter, then please be aware that patterns cannot
contain variable references.

The usual workaround is

<xsl:template match="someElement">
  <xsl:if test="someChildren=$someString">

rather than the disallowed

<xsl:template match="someElement[someChildren=$someString]">
