In effect, you want a higher-order function/template that accepts a
function/template as a parameter and then calls that function/template.

This is precisely what Dimitre's FXSL approach does. You can't supply a
template as a parameter, but you can supply a node that acts as a
surrogate for the template, so that when you apply-templates to that
node, the template that's invoked depends on which node was supplied.
