xsl:include must be able to be resolved at compile time, so it cannot
come from a variable.

The usual technique here is to put the variable code into stylesheets
that import the common code, rather that have a stylesheet that imports
stylesheets based on the variable.

Currently you are trying to do:

    / | \
   /  |  \
  B   C   D

Where A imports B, C, or D based on some variable.  Whereas you want to

  B   C   D
   \  |  /
    \ | /

Where B, C, or D imports A.  You can then decide which stylesheet to
apply to your source (b c or d) based on the variable.
